Is Doing Your Best your philosophy?

As the week crests into hump day – and best being our theme, it occurs to me that it’s really a philosophy.


The philosophy of continually doing your best each day or in each endeavor.


Is doing your best a philosophy you have?


Abraham Lincoln has something interesting to say about being the best –


“I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and mean to keep doing so until the end.

If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won’t amount to anything.

If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.”



This struck me as interesting, knowing how history played out. This shows us that Lincoln was concerned with his decisions and that he was thoughtful about what he was doing and that his intent was to do his best and keep on doing it.


What a wonderful standard or philosophy.


It makes me question whether I am always doing my best. This question refocuses me to do just that. I hope it does for you as well.


You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!


Blessings, Shawna
