Focusing on Excellence

Today’s Workout
As many rounds as possible, in 20 min:
5 pullups
10 pushups
15 squatsI have a bad habit. There are so many things in this world I want to DO that I sometimes try to take on way too many at the same time. I also don’t like to not do my absolute best at things. This is not a great combination.

So, recently I’ve been focusing on excellence. I decided I don’t need to take private Spanish lessons, even though I really want to learn Spanish. And I decided to cut down on a few other new hobbies, as well. I decided instead to be excellent at fewer things. In particular, I’m focused on being excellent in my writing career. For me especially, I know when I’m feeling content and fully expressed in an area I’m passionate about, it spreads to other parts of my life anyway. Being excellent at something bleeds over into the rest of your being.

Do you run into this problem? Does this happen to you in CrossFit where you feel like you’re pretty good at a lot of things, but can’t really excel in any one area? What would happen if you let go of having to be good at all of it for a while. What if you just focused on being excellent at a couple things instead of all of it?
