Why Save Your Best For Last?

What is a lifetime of living your dreams worth to you?

July 12, 2003.

“The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Always seeking to do our very best is what prime time living is all about. After all, that winner within us craves the opportunity to let it rip — giving life our very best shot every time out. Yet we sometimes fail to give it our all, feeling compelled to hold something in reserve just in case it’s needed later.

While saving your best for last may seem like a safe road to follow at first blush, in reality it’s a road chock full of potholes. By holding back your very best stuff, you go to bat with your less than your very best. Winners quickly learn that the only way to play the game of life is at full throttle, giving it EVERYTHING they’ve got all of the time. And so must you.

“Doing your best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.”
Oprah Winfrey

Why wait for the best life has to offer when you can enjoy it right now? Your life adventure is a series of moments that shape the type of lifestyle you get to enjoy… or endure. And by bringing your best to the table day in and day out, you immeasurably enhance your prospects of fulfilling your fondest wishes and making your life a dream come true right away.

Besides, how can anyone reasonably expect the best from life when he or she doesn’t put forth his or her very best effort? If you’re not willing to lay it all on the line and give life your very best shot daily, there will always be someone else who will. Is that a chance you’re willing to take?

“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.”
Steve Prefontaine

The world is full of people who give life a half hearted effort, always keeping the back door open in case they stumble or come up short. This type of back door mentality typically backfires on the play it safe crowd, since they are basically preparing to fail in advance.

Rather than laying the groundwork for giving less than your best, why not roll the dice and give it everything you have and more? Instead of setting the table for defeat, why not assume a much more positive approach — expecting to win right from the get go?

“Your ultimate goal should be doing your best and enjoying it.
Peggy Fleming

You need to take the gifts you have been blessed with and then play them for all their worth. And not just every once in a while, but every single day! Excellence is all about constantly seeking to do your very best, not playing it close to the vest.

If you constantly play it safe, hoping to minimize your potential losses, you are in reality taking the greatest risk of all. That’s right; by leaving that back door open to all sorts of doubts and second guessing, it’s almost a lead pipe cinch that you’ll come up short. You need to nail that back door shut and then boldly charge ahead, eagerly anticipating your next victory in the making.

When you begin throwing your entire heart and soul into everything you do, you’ll discover that there is never any need to save your best for last. When you consistently give life your very best effort right up front, you’ll start loving the life you live — right now.

The Bottom Line: Rather than save your best for last, why give life your best shot today and set your sights on coming in first instead?
