Thought for Friday, September 29, 2023

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.

Maya Angelou

This mantra is the essence of a life well-lived and work well-done, offering room for mistakes while also encouraging ongoing development. When you're at a certain point in your life or career, your "best" is based on the skills, knowledge, and experiences you have up to that moment. And that's completely okay. But the game-changer is the commitment to continual learning and adaptation. As you gain more insights, whether it's from feedback, education, or simple trial and error, the bar for your "best" gets raised. You evolve. Doing "better" isn't about negating your past efforts; it's about honoring your newfound knowledge by applying it. So in a way, you're constantly in conversation with your past and future selves, working in harmony to make the present moment count.
