“Not My Best Stuff”

Warning: another sports analogy….

Sometimes after a game, the winning pitcher gets interviewed and says he didn’t “have his best stuff.”  But he battled through and gutted out a win.

That type of victory is just as impressive–if not more so–as throwing a complete game shutout when you’re on fire.

For any passion project, anything you’re trying to do, know that there will be hours, days, weeks, even months when you just don’t have it.  And don’t feel like doing it.

Discipline is doing it anyway.  Mucking your way through. 

Experience provides the confidence that you can still perform at a high level. 

Blind faith is the belief that your best stuff is right around the corner.

P.S. – Bonus points if you can name the former Cubs ace pictured above.

P.P.S. – RIP Sonny.
