The Right Things

Randy Pausch, late author of The Last Lecture talks about the importance of doing the right things as opposed to doing things right. "If you do the right things adequately," he explains, "that's much more important than doing the wrong things beautifully."

Is writing the right thing for you? Or perhaps it's painting, gardening, going for a walk, visiting an elderly friend in a care facility. Chances are, if you're focusing on perfection, you're not spending enough time doing the thing you need to do.

If it's right, do it. Even if you're doing it wrong.

Make a list of the right things you are already doing in your life.
