In a recent podcast (Finding Mastery with Dr. Michael Gervais), Cap Ripken Jr was asked what he focused on each day.
Calvin Ripken Jr., nicknamed “The Iron Man”, is a former major league baseball shortstop and third baseman who played 21 seasons for the Baltimore Orioles.
Ripken holds the record for consecutive games played, 2,632, surpassing Lou Gehrig’s streak of 2,130 that had stood for 56 years and that many deemed unbreakable.
His answer “Win the day.”
You can play the long game both with a great vision for your career and taking it one day at a time.
On a recent day during PTO, nothing was more important than lying down in the park and watching the sunset with my wife and daughter.
Win the day.
