“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing ….”

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. — Mahatma Ghandi

Here is a venn diagram that summarizes my thinking about this quote. Imagine another large circle, a hair bigger than the yellow one which contains “most of the world’s problems.”

There are lots of interesting things to think about here. I challenge you to think through each overlapped or non-overlapped section and consider how many things in your own life may indeed fit in each section of the Venn Diagram.

    Reblogged this on The Wonderings of a Peripatetic and commented:
    For all the opportunities we seize, there are always a hundred more we miss. But that doesn’t mean we should ever settle for anything less than trying it all!

    I am obviously missing something. Why is so much of “things we do” outside “Things we know we can do?” A small sliver, maybe. Tops.
