When you’re preparing for an event, a show or a race. It’s not the actual day of the event that matters most. It’s not whether or not you’re going to push harder that day than you did the last time around.
What differentiates great from remarkable is the preparation you did beforehand not the performance.
The same is true in business.
“We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.” Archilochus
