ABetterMe

Today's me was okay, but not as good as I wanted to be.  

I think I can improve on several elements that are currently important to me - musical prowess, gardening, land/animal stewardship, writing, communicating, mentoring, etc.  I'm pretty sure those skills won't improve by themselves.  It's gonna take my purposeful attention, a dedication of some time, the expenditure of effort, and, oh yeah, a healthy dose of self discipline.  If history means anything, I'm sure there'll be a few mistakes and fails in the process, too.

It's not just about me, though.  I am very aware that when I make me better, there are healthy benefits for my family.  And, a better me will improve the lives and performance of the teams I participate on, the natural resources I manage, the faculties I teach with, and the customers I serve.

I got a little better today.  Tomorrow will see a better me than we had when this day started. 

But, there's still plenty of room for improvement.
