Is there a bottom?

Physically I have what would be described as broad shoulders.  Figuratively I am what would be described as someone who takes on a lot.

And lately, that combination has not helped me.

It’s what I call the 80% rule, and in my case it’s just not good enough.  Too often I feel like my best effort only gets me 80% of the way there.  And what is incredibly frustrating to me is that someone I respect a lot once sat me down and explained to me about the devil in the details, and its the end of the line where the details come together.

Did I do enough? Did I do all I can do?

Too often as I look inward I answer, “No.”
