One of my favorite gems from the Buddha is this wisdom: “Little by little one becomes evil, as a water pot is filled with water. Little by little one becomes good, as a water pot is filled with water.” The optimal way to Optimize? Drop by drop by drop. +1. +1. +1. Back in the day, I used to get all fired up and want to change EVERYTHING once and for all (!!!) and RIGHT NOW!! (Technically, I wanted it yesterday but you get the idea. 😃) You ever have that feeling? You go to a weekend workshop (or read a book or whatever) and you’re like, “It’s on. I’m snapping my fingers and changing it all. Check me out!!” Then a week later you wonder what happened. Rather than patiently add another +1 drop to my Optimizing pot, I used to turn on the fire hydrant and send the pot flying around the room. (Nearly breaking it in the process.) Not good. Now? Now I love those little drops. You? Let’s Optimize how we’re filling up our water pots. Little by little. Drop by drop. +1. +1. +1.
