Football coach Pete Carroll was once asked, “Pete, which is better: winning or competing?”

He simply replied, “Competing… because it lasts longer.”

You may not feel as though you’re winning at the moment, but you can still compete.

You can still battle.

You can still persevere.

You can still do your best.

You can still find ways to continually improve.

You can still be true to your values.

You can still help others along the way.

This isn’t a year to be looking at the scoreboard.

It’s the year to focus on the process and habits that will deliver long-term results.
