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.
