Going the Extra Mile

My 4th grade(?) social studies(?) teacher, Mrs Wallace(?) always encouraged us to go "the extra mile".

Good advice. Imagine if the potter who made this pot thought to themselves, "I don't have time for all of these imbricates!" It wouldn't be the beautiful pot that it is.

Don't second guess your impulse to go for broke!  Go that extra mile!
