Start Over

You did it before, can you do it again?

By Anthony Boyd

Everyday you must start over — become a beginner again.

It doesn’t matter what you did yesterday. Or last week. Or last year.

This is a “what have you done for me today?” kind of affair.

Wrote an awesome piece 3 days ago? So what. Start over.

Ran 5 miles in 40 minutes yesterday? Guess what? It’s time for a do over.

You bench pressed 315 pounds when you were 22? What can you do now, though? Nobody wants to hear that sh*t. Show me what you can do NOW.

You never stop starting over. You’re always a beginner no matter how many memories of past accomplishments you string together.
