How do you know how well you're succeeding?

You don't really know how well you're succeeding unless you keep pushing until you don't succeed anymore. If you always succeed, then you're not pushing yourself enough.

Blech. I don't like the second person there but that sentence sounds too weird otherwise. I do try to keep pushing in many things until I fail. I've been told that it's better to go up in little increments so that I don't fail but I don't know what the increments should be until I find a breaking point. There are some situations where it's possible to determine that you're getting close to the edge. Taking a curve at speed is one. I can feel if the wheels are starting to slip and back off some. Yes, if I hit a patch of oil or ice, I'm in trouble. But that's why I practice at recovering from such things and I also try to avoid situations where I might encounter such.

There are definitely places in my life where I don't want to test until failure. My meds and work are two that come to mind immediately. But there are vast areas still to test when I remember to do so. I like feeling better.

P.S. I've edited this multiple times and thrown it away twice and while I'm not satisfied how this came out, I seem to just be changing happy to glad.
