What do I do when my best isn’t good enough?

Winning isn’t everything. It’s how we play the game, right? That’s what we tell ourselves, our kids, or our team when we tried our hardest, did the best we possibly could, and still lost. The truth is that how we played only matters if we learn. Learning how to succeed is the real goal. The act of winning lasts for only a moment, but the learning process of success is what fills the space between our victories. When our best isn’t good enough, we should do our best to understand why. That’s the first step in learning how to improve our best efforts towards the goal.
