“No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good.” CS Lewis “Mere Christianity”
One of my favorite things about CS Lewis is ability to capture the ordinary struggle faced by all of us.
Writing these emails every day for so long has been an exercise in exactly this.
Each day is an exercise is illuminating one more thing that I could improve on.
Each day is a realization that I still have a long way to go.
But each day is also a reminder that it is worth it.
It’s worth it to work towards something meaningful.
It’s worth it to “try very hard to be good” (even when it seems a long way off).
We will all fall short of perfection in the end, but moving closer each day is the only way.
Make it a great day.
