Dreaming Big

There are many who are willing to say this is good enough and then there are other who just know in their gut that they can do better and are willing to go the extra mile.  That applies to relationships, marriages, businesses, traveling, etc.  I am not a fan of perfection as I do believe in the saying perfection is the enemy of the good yet how good is good. 

Someone told me this story the other day as it related to advice.  It continues to return to my thoughts.

You are dropped off on an island.  You are given supplies and told that there is fresh water there.  You begin to investigate.  How big is the island, is it inhabitated, where will it be safe to camp and more importantly where is the fresh water.  You come upon a large pond of muddy water.  You realize that you can could easily set up camp next to the muddy pond and boil the water every day.  You would completely survive.  Some people would just do that.  They would live with dirty water every day and just try and get through it by boiling the water.  Then there are others who would pass by the muddy water and go onward to find the fresh water where they could be happy and content without having to deal with dirt. 

An interesting observation about life.
