Another theme...

I spent a little time today trying to see if there was anything common to the instances where I've felt like other people let me down (i.e. on volunteer projects or whatnot). The best I could come up with was this: that I may have a tendency to mistake lack of motivation for laziness.

Recently I came across a quote (from "The Wisdom of the Sands" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery) which addresses this: "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders; instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea."
