"We must all either wear out or rust out, every one of us. My choice is to wear out." - Theodore Roosevelt
It's year end. In the financial services industry (like others), this is the sprint to the finish in conjuction with the craziness of the holidays. I am tired. Some days, it's all I can do to make it to the couch in the evenings before I fall asleep.
And yet, what is the alternative? Would I rather run hard, make progress on my goals, be present for my family, and be active/engaged... or be idle, unmotivated, stale and static?
Amazing the power of a small question to adjust your mindset. And this question is not once a year, it's present in every moment of ever day. You are free to choose.
For me, I choose to wear out and leave it all on the field of life. How about you?
