excellent analogies! to aid accomplishing one's purposes in completion!
I loved how the analogies built from everyday common events, to an example that I personally wish to attain. It reminded me to settle for the task done, and go on! to build further, using that task accomplished. Do the job! Go on to the next, and build! Rather than pick and re-do, or dream away -- one's life. He spoke a whole simpler than I! Thankfully!!! Because he helped me understand my own demise! I've got projects on the burner! And they need to be cooked and put on display! Or saved for another meal! with friends! and family! Thank YOU!
