Big Red Car here. Wet day today, no running time which makes me feel listless and like a mediocre convertible — not the excellent, authentic All American car I am capable of being. Need a bath and a shine.
Which gets me to thinking about iterative improvement and the path to excellence.
Nobody ever gets to excellence in one leap. You get there by a series of iterative changes.
Do not despair even when you may go backwards once or twice.
Just keep plugging away and working toward a new level of heightened performance.
But, hey, what the Hell do I know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car.
