  1. Beautiful.

    It reminds me of an old Calvin and Hobbes that went something like this …

    Calvin just got his grade back and he got a D.

    At first he was sad, but then he realized he just had to lower his standards and then he was happy again ;)

  2. @scott_chambers:disqus I agree. This quote creates a moment of pause and introspection. When you’re pushing yourself and stepping outside of your comfort zone, you will sometimes fail. But this is what makes our “best” better over time.
