It’s tempting to catch up, do extra, race harder, or double down. Looking back at what’s been done (or more often in my case, ruminating on how much less than desired is done) and demanding a new, better pace going forward.
But none of those options gives you any more hours, any more energy, or any more of the present moment than what you have already. You’re only left with the choice of what to do right now.
Find the best path and begin.
When you’re off the path, begin again.
If you slow to a halt, begin again.
