If we don't aspire to the seemingly impossible BEST, what should we aspire to?


"Hitch your wagon to a star, keep your seat and there you are." An expression not commonly heard in these days of "instant gratification." Given that seemingly national trait, should we only aspire to the immediately doable? By so doing, are we ignoring the excellence which has made us so strong in the past? I once was sent the Comment that what I proposed in one of my Hubs was so "ideal" as to be impossible. Should I not have proposed it? We say we want what is best for everyone." We know that is so utopian as to be unlikely, but if we want that shouldn't we aspire to that? Good enough?

    Good, clear focus, but does that mean you are a "Perfectionist"? Does everything have an equal priority? Certainly not, and some things may deserve less attention at a given time, or even less effort. Duty to others helps decide, then to self.
