    He's certainly apt in showing others what their potential could be. By giving 250% of himself. He is the greatest example of what 'potential' even means.

    Aside from that I feel far, far, far from qualified to be judging him.

    Was there art to be still realized? Sure. Musically? Maybe. As writer? Definitely. As a grandpa? Very much so.

    And that's where I end the list because I don't feel qualified to limit him to MY imagination.

    I know I'll cherish him beyond the pale for all eternities. And he's good with surprises.

    That's not an easy question to answer, but I would say no for the reason that he wanted to go on to making films, and he was robbed of that chance. He had been wanting to make films since the 80s. I think he had reached the stars and back already in his life, but of course he was always trying to go beyond. I don't think he could have ever maxed out on his potential, but he certainly did more in one lifetime than most people would do if given many lifetimes.

    I'd say he reached his full potential musically.

    I would say no. New ideas and passion are something that keeps the artist moving forward. Michael was still full of ideas and plans for the future, like making movies, for example, and he was so excited when he spoke about it. He must have been feeling that he could make his dreams come true Anyway, it truly is mind-boggling to think how much one man can accomplish in one short life. His achievements (entertainment and non-entertainment) are truly staggering!

    I don't think so. He was much hindered and distracted by the attacks (mainly the allegations) since 1993. I often imagine what it could have been without the allegations. I think he would have had a lot more to offer (including movies, not just music).

    I agree with you...I think about this all the time, too...I think things would have been very different; not that he didn't reach potential during this time, but I think he had SO much more to show us....His potential was really limitless...

    Agreed...It's amazing just to fathom if those distractions weren't there... :sigh:

    Yes............the attacks also made is health really bad during certain parts of the 90's and 00's................

    The Pepsi incident in the 80's didn't help either!!!!!!!

    I am not sure, it is hard to answer. I think he went places musically that others can only dream of doing, his humanitarian work was way beyond that of many celebrities. BUT was any of this his full potential? I don't know as he just seemed to keep going and going over the years so I'm not sure we'll ever know for certain if he still had more to come but ultimately he did a lot lot lot more than average

    If I say yes I am kidding myself..I think of Michael's own words.."You ain't seen nothing yet".....just hearing those words come from Michael's mouth ..tells me he still had more to do here...he wasn't finished yet. I think Michael had more going on in his head that he wanted to wow us with. With that being said....I want to say thank you Michael for all that you DID give to us and to the world.
