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.
