More Than Just A 'Do-Over'

Often in life we don't accomplish tasks (to our satisfaction) at the first attempt. So, we try again and sometimes again - until we get it.

But something struck me the other day. Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is insanity right? - Yet we seem to do this time and again. 
How often do we change something in our method or execution of the task on the next go?
Most of the time we just repeat the SAME action, get the SAME result and soon give up because nothing changes. This isn't such a big deal if you repeat and fail to assemble a new TV stand for instance but what about when it comes to your life? What if your business venture or family's financial independence depended on you getting it right?

This leads me to question just how engaged we are with life... I believe we mostly sail through life, half conscious, half aware and half trying to pursue the very things we claim to live for... All we get is half results - never quite making it.

Obstacles come up and you will definitely need to try some things again. Give yourself then satisfaction of knowing that you truly gave the most important pursuits in your life your best shot, EACH time.

Be present in your life and see the results you get when you give it your all.
