Don’t worry about what’s outside the space

I came across an interesting piece written by a man who was touring Italy and, as most tourists do, visited the magnificent cathedrals and admired the art treasures within them. At one such cathedral he found an artist kneeling before a huge wall, upon which he’d just begun to create a mosaic. Nearby lay thousands of pieces of coloured ceramic. The visitor asked the artist how he would ever finish such a large project. The artist answered that he knew how much he could accomplish in one day, so, each morning, he’d mark off an area to be completed that day, and didn’t worry about what remained outside that space. That was the best he could do; and if he faithfully did his best, one day the mosaic would be finished.
And that’s also the best advice for those of us who are worried about making something worthwhile of our lives.
