It's a funny thing, potential. We have so much of it, just in our humanity. And then with our technology, it is seemingly unbounded. For example, the computer I am working on can do so much, I feel obliged to try to get it all done! And then I end up multitasking to such an extent that all I have left at the end of a day is a lot of pieces of potentialities. We simply can't accomplish everything that is potentially possible. We have to make choices that involve sacrifice of something that is potentially precious so that at least something makes the leap from potency to act.
