Starting or finishing?

Which one works better for you?

Anticipation or satisfaction?

Looking forward or remembering back?

Sunrise or sunset?

The intrinsic excitement that comes with looking forward to something or the sense of fulfillment that comes with completing something?

The answer of course should be both. Both are needed and both carry their own beauty and purpose.

Expect the first...accept everything that happens with the last.

If you embrace both, the time you spend between the two will be better served.

It's how you start and how you finish that will define your day.

It's not about the minutes or hours that separate the two. It's the moments that are ours that do.

Enjoy both...and everything in between.

Sometimes...being OK is better than being just OK

You know those times when you ask someone how they are doing and they respond with "I'm OK" and you say "just OK"?

As you go through life, you realize a lot of times...being OK is actually pretty good.

Look, If you run anything at too high of a temp, what happens? It burns out.

Conversely, if you run something for too long at too cool of a temp, what happens? It dies.

A lot of times...being OK is a pretty good soft landing place.

Now...don't get me need to turn up the heat sometimes to feel the burn and you also need to go into extreme chill periods where you can shut down but if OK is in the middle...that's doing pretty damn good.

Now, here is the key though. Surround yourself with some people who let you know that you are OK...or it will be OK because a lot of times you might not feel it.

I will take OK. The opposite? A KO. Yeah...OK isn't too shabby.
