Never give your best

Being average is so much more productive and healthier than trying to be your best. Trying your best will never yield your best, it will only deliver a lot of suffering and maybe even lessen your otherwise average result. Reach for the apples and you will likely get some apples. Reach for the stars and you’ll still get apples and strain your back. Those who give advice like: “Always give your best!” have either not achieved their goal yet or have a misconception of how they got there.
Never give your best! Not only because it’s not in your best interest, but also because you might be interfering with others in the process, keeping them from being good enough.
