Every year Apple comes out with a new version of the iPhone. Software companies come out with many versions of there product once or twice or three times within a year.
And we seem to be ok with that and we appreciate that.
We should have the same thought process for ourselves.
I am currently on version 34.328 of myself. The 34 represents the number of years I’ve been in this world and 328 represents the number of days until my 35th birthday.
There are two meaningful reasons on looking at our life this way:
1. It’s a reminder that each day is an opportunity to improve from the last day
2. We will never be perfect and that is ok
Having this form of mindset is liberating. It liberates from the feeling that you need to be perfect in life. It liberates you to be able to explore. It liberates you to try. It liberates you to make mistakes. It liberates to learn more about yourself. It liberates you to evolve.
I will never be the perfect father or husband or business owner or coach or friend or any other roles in my life. But I can constantly strive to be better in each of my roles every day. I can put out a new and improved version of myself each day.
My question to you is what version of yourself are you currently? How do you plan to put out a new version of yourself today and tomorrow and so on?
