Make or do

“One is not born into the world to do everything but to do something.” Henry David Thoreau

Make or do: which one should I use? It is sometimes difficult to know which is the right verb to choose.
Here you have some tips: We usually choose DO when we talk about jobs or duties (for example, I did my project with a lot of effort).
We also use DO when we do not want to be too specific about something (for example, We did something wrong).
Make: Use this verb when you want to talk about plans or decisions, " She made a plan and later made up her mind".
