Well, it was a long day. On 5 hours of sleep, I dragged myself out of bed to go to a conference for the Canadian Marketing Association. It was worth the lack of sleep – I learned a lot and met some fascinating people. However, it meant that by the time I got home, I was just exhausted.
I could have just called it a night, but I still got in a workout. It wasn’t the best workout I’ve ever done, but it was a workout, and I call that a victory.
The happy thought for today is pushing through. When you fight circumstances and forces against you, and you still get something done, that’s a victory. You could easily reach for an excuse, and very few people would call you on it. But it would be an excuse.
So, salute those people around you who fight through the excuses and still get things done. They might not be working at 100%, but they haven’t stopped.
