Foot to the Pedal

The day has been won. It’s time to kick back, light a cigar, and enjoy that glass of bourbon. Relax. There’s no more fight needed. Everything has been tackled. No more effort is needed.

Maybe enjoy that glass of bourbon. But don’t stop.

Don’t let off the gas.

It’s that simple. When the tasks have been completed, when victory for the day is won, keep going. Victory is only temporary.

Too often I’ve done this very thing. I accomplish a goal and then I call it a day. I move on to letting my id take over to call all the shots. Instagram, Netflix, or whatever become my focus. My definitive chief aim, my telos, my goals in life take a break from my being and I drop off.

By all means, celebrate the victory, just don’t let off the gas.
