If you don’t have time to get it all done, get some of it done. If you’re not able to do it perfectly, do it the best you can.
It’s great to visualize an ideal world. Always keep in mind, though, that you must live in the real world as it is.
Conditions are never going to be perfect, so stop waiting endlessly for them to be. The fact is, you can arrange for conditions to be good enough, and then go forward with what you have.
Aim for perfection, but don’t let that stop you from working with reality. Live according to your highest vision, and also with practical, common sense.
Climb to the top of the mountain and get a clear view of the big picture. Then commit yourself to taking care of all the little details, filling that big picture with living richness.
See life as the best it can be, and live life as it comes to you. That will keep you always moving in a positive, fulfilling direction.
