Not Quite Cal
Cal Ripkin Jr was able to set an amazing record in Major League Baseball: he played in 2,632 consecutive games. This was 502 more than second place on the all-time list, 1,325 more than the third man on the list.
While Cal went out every day and played, I need a break once in a while…and I realize now that today is one of those days. So, I leave you with someone else’s words in my stead: a quote from Carl Rogers that relates to my own personal goals as a therapist striving to be great at doing less:
The degree to which I can create relationships which facilitate the growth of others as separate persons is a measure of the growth I have achieved in myself.
