Rest On Your Laurels

Rest on your laurels... but do not sleep! - TJ

No matter how much we have achieved, we are only as good as our next test will show. What's more, there is always a "next test"!

What is past is past, dead. Memories are short; people do not remember. Ask any sporting "legend" continuing to play past his age.

You might have done great things. You might be number 1, but number 2 is right behind. If you can be there, so can he. There is only one top-spot. I quote the famous Avis slogan "We're number 2, so we try harder."

What you're doing now is important, all-important. It will define you in the near future.

But as a side-quip, it is not that important either! There's always next time, right? Relax, have a good time. That's the most important thing!

  1. It can't be put better!! I'd like to quote the Olympic motto "Citius, Altius, Fortius" (Swifter, Higher, Stronger).
