Commitment seems to have no greater enemy than imperfection, especially for those of us who love a beautiful final product, unmarked by mistakes or flaws. But is there an opportunity to use those missed days and setbacks to create an even better result?
You’ve made the commitment. You’re motivated and energized. One activity, every day, for 100 days.
