Thats a good thought.
From the moment we start to breathe we are told to give our best and be outstanding. What a heavy glass of water! Don't try your best! If you are just average, you'll feel much less pressure. If I'm trying hard to get to the top of the scoreboard, my K/D goes down, if you know what I mean. Easily transferrable into real life
Credit for that thought goes to Keith Johnstone by the way.
