Painting over bad paint never works does it? And yet that is what we constantly try to do with our lives as Bob Kellerman points out in his article on the foolish futility of self-sufficiency.

Great thoughts by Doug Wilson.
Here are the seven points:
- The point is fruitfulness, not efficiency. [Comment: This point is especially excellent. Very often, the question for optimal efficiency backfires and is actually less efficient. It's this way in management as well: seek effectiveness, and efficiency often follows. Seek efficiency, and you'll probably lose both.]
- Build a fence around your life, and keep that fence tended.
- Perfectionism paralyzes.
- Fill in the corners.
- Take in more than you give out.
- Use and reuse.
Thanks to Matt for pointing me to this
