A very busy week for us - we are on the road a lot – much to do - and not enough time to concentrate fully on my Simplicity Blog but one thing that came to my inbox today hits home powerfully to me.
"Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." - William Faulkner
Quite often, people - including me when I was younger - try to copy people we see as role models when what we should remember is that we are all special individuals. Living our life in the best way we can is always good enough. You and me don't need to copy anyone.
I always pinch good ideas from people I respect and admire - but as this quote indicates - just be yourself and do that well - then try to do that better. Simplicity!
Put another way - Just try to impress the person you see in the mirror.
