One percent is the distance that I remain from reaching the idealized version of myself, and it is also the number responsible for all the problems in my life.
If could just do all the things I propose for myself: cook more meals, go running more often, put more energy into playing with my kids, etc, then I would be a happier person.
But obtaining that one percent is also just the right amount to make me feel worthless sometimes. And all those things that I never do just add to my frustration. So, is the one percent really worth it? Shouldn't I accept a lower, but passing grade, and move on to my favorite subject?
