My brother-in-law said something to me this weekend that I’ve heard before, but landed a bit different for me this time.

We were trying to get a plumbing line to drain with the tools we had at our disposal. When we were all finished – and a bit defeated because we couldn’t get the clog out of the line he said, “We might not have gotten 100% of the result we wanted, but we gave 100% effort.”

I thought about it before agreeing with him.

After all, isn’t that what we all want. I know I do.
