Is It Ever Okay to Not Do Your Best?

“If you’re not going to do it right, don’t do it at all.”

That’s the code Matt and I both try to live by most of the time. But throughout December, with Matt sick and me “functioning” on new-dad sleep, our healthy habits … well let’s just say they haven’t been on point.

In today’s episode we discuss when — if ever — it’s okay to not do your best, and when it’s better to simply let a habit, hobby, or routine go completely.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • We’re back! Updates on babies and illness
  • The habits that slide when you get busy
  • How perfection becomes an excuse
  • Why healthy eating should always be a priority
  • How to eat healthy when time is limited
  • Jazz drumming?
