The Chicago Cubs will never have another baseball season like the last one. When they won the World Series. For the first time in 108 years. Oh, sooner or later, they will win again.  But it won’t be the same as 2016. When the Cubs were on a mission. Fully prepared. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. To maintain an incredible superior pace. For an entire baseball season. To pull off a miracle. By being focused. On the goal. All the way.  It was almost as if they walked on water.  They truly believed that they could do it. The Cubs are believers no more.  Not necessarily because they don’t want to believe.  But rather. Because we humans are designed to stay high and focused and creative for only so long. It’s too exhaustive. We need breaks. We need to coast. To catch our breaths. To rejuvenate. We can’t always be at our best. That’s a fact of life. --Jim

When I’m not at my best. I’m really not so bad off.  Because I am consciously slacking off. Getting much-needed respite. So that at some point in the future, I’ll have the wherewithal to be extraordinary. It’s a matter of pacing myself. To accomplish my carefully calculated goal. --Jim

Maybe I don't have goals. Instead, I let stuff happen. And deal with it. The best I can. That's the nature of life. Taking it. Not only a day at a time. But a moment at a time. --Jim
