Old notes 4May 13th, 2021
Knowing when to stop or knowing your limits.
There’s a breaking point in everything.
Full of examples in daily life of the consequences of pushing beyond your limits and over doing.
Take driving a screw.
When you drive a screw, you must know when to stop.
Drive it beyond this point and you strip the wood. Don’t drive it enough and it doesn’t hold.
Know when to stop—push it just enough and no more.
