Hit it, don’t quit

How to be good at anything. In short: do it, get feedback, study how to improve, repeat.

Something I’ve found, through crossfit, is that if I have any strong suit it’s not quitting. Seems trite now that I write it, but it occasionally helps to state the obvious.

Once I’ve decided an activity is worthwhile, I’m pretty good at sticking with it no matter how silly I feel doing it. I’m not the strongest, the fastest, or the best eater. I’m not the smartest, the funniest, or the most charming. But I’ve made progress in life by showing up every day and trying to do a little better than the previous day.

The bottom line: pick a few things to do well, do them, and don’t quit.
