That’s the gap Martin Luther King Jr. stood in his entire life, the gap Nelson Mandela stands in to this day. That’s the gap where Rosa Parks and Dorothy Day stood. I call it “tragic” because it’s a gap that will never close, an inevitable flaw in the human condition. No one who has stood for high values — love, truth, justice — has died being able to declare victory, once and for all. If we embrace values like those, we need to find ways to stand in the gap for the long haul, and be prepared to die without having achieved our goals.

That means we need to change our calculus about what makes an action worth taking and get past our obsession with results. Being effective is important, of course. I write books because I want to have an impact. But if the only way we judge an action is by its effectiveness, we will take on smaller and smaller tasks, because they’re the only kind with which we are sure we can get results. I’m not giving up on effectiveness, but it has to be secondary.(就是说我们需要改变当我们面临一件值不值得去做的事时,还用我们以前的以效率考虑结果这样的弊病去处理,当然效率很重要。我写书因为我想去启发人,而不能只关注出作品的效率,我们得顺次渐进,因为只有这样,我们最终会到达我们希望的目标。我并不放弃效率,但效率相对拥抱爱、真理、公平这样高的人生价值观,必须放在次要的位置去考虑)
