It does and it doesn’t

10 Hang Squat Clean & Push Jerks (135/95)
2-min rest
10 Hang Squat Clean & Push Jerks (115/85)You set yourself up for a goal. Didn’t get it? Does it matter?

Well, it does and it doesn’t.

It matters because achievement and growth are fun.
It matters because you did a lot for it and you want a reward for your hard work.
It matters because you want to know yourself as someone who makes something happen when you say it will.

It doesn’t matter because hitting or not hitting the mark doesn’t give you who you are. You say who you are.
It doesn’t matter because every day is a new opportunity to be the person you said you’d be.
It doesn’t matter because you made it up anyway.

See, if it’s a failure of performance rather than a personal failure all there is to do is to look at what was missing and take the next action.
Remember you made it up and what you didn’t say was “This will tell me who I am.” You said “This would be cool!”
Why would you turn it into something else?
