There’s Always Room for Improvement

I can still hear my mother saying ” There’s always room for improvement!”
As a child that was the last thing I wanted to hear especially when I thought I had done a good job at either my school work or household chores. As an adult, I now know that mom had a valid point. Even our best efforts, that yield above-average results, can be upgraded if we do a little introspection.
It is easy to be average and even acceptable, at minimum in some cases. But why settle for average when, with a little extra effort, average can become exceptional!
I am encouraged to look back over my accomplishments and compare them to my original goals and see where I fell short. I will not condemn nor will I beat myself up, but I will note my shortfalls and aim to make room for improvement this coming year!
Make Room for Improvement!
