Thoreau's advice for the perfectionist

Do you ever get so discouraged about not being able to do everything that you just do nothing? Maybe that's just me. All the time.  Glad I ran across this quote that I took down a long time ago:

"A man has not everything to do, but something; and because he cannot do everything, it is not necessary that he should do something wrong."

-Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience

  1. Hmm, food for thought. I need to find the most important "something"s I have to do, and make sure I do them right.
