Better, not harder

Whenever we come up short, we hear people say ‘try harder’.

But after a while, we run out of energy to keep pushing on.

There’s no more energy left to try ‘harder’.

Sooner or later, we all come up empty.

What if instead of trying ‘harder’, we try ‘better’.

Take the path we’ve been afraid of all this time.

Spend the time to learn a whole new approach.

Because ‘better’ just might be the answer when ‘harder’ doesn’t seem to work out.
