We work hard.
We stay off our phones and pay attention to our family.
We exercise because we like it.
Sort of is an out.
An escape and an excuse.
For not reaching our full potential.
Sort of is a cop out.
It lets us feel as if we are almost there.
Almost is a far cry from arriving.
Sort of holds us back.
We should demand full accountability from ourselves.
An honest assessment of where we are at.
Squishy goals yield squishy outcomes.
Sort of is the pathway to squishy.
For today, let us listen to our words and our thoughts.
Are we settling for sort of?
If so, let us push back against our almost goals.
Sort of makes sense, no?
