I haven’t done my best work …. yet.

“Yet.”

The hope, self-belief, expectation, and power that little word contains.

I am not a great teacher … yet.
I am not a great researcher … yet.
I am not a great professor … yet.
I am not a great writer … yet.
I cannot speak Spanish … yet
I am not a great entrepreneur … yet.
I am not a great engineer … yet.
I am not a great runner … yet.

My favorite one?

I haven’t done my best work … yet.

“Yet” says it will happen. “Yet” expresses that it’s worth waiting for. “Yet” expresses that it will take time and patience. “Yet” says I have work to put in.

“Yet” says I am capable of getting there.

“Yet” says I am on my way to getting there.

“Yet” says I will get there.

Stanford University Professor Carol Dweck talks about the power of “yet.”
