Jack

In one reality, he did not live up to his potential because of a lack of discipline and determination. His native intelligence and dexterity allowed him to learn many things quickly, but he never kept at anything for very long.

In a less moralistic reality, he was forced by circumstances to do whatever needed doing to get by. He took the odd job, but he would always end up surplus to requirements at some point. They would find someone else to take over the job for real.

In one reality, he didn’t push, while in the other, he was limited. In yet another, he pushed in every direction and found few limits to his efforts. Still, he had twenty-four hours a day, same as everybody else who had a claim on his energies, or who thought that they did.
