That's actually a reason not to trash files. Dirk Halstead went through a similar process with the Monica Lewinsky photo; it was actually a high photo of his career.

As for cropping: I try to get it roughly right in the camera most of the time. There are few occasions when I go out with a 15mm lens and think to myself "Today I'm going to shoot everything with this lens, and then intentionally crop out a tiny section to achieve a telephoto view if I need it, because I can't afford to take the time to change lenses." I think I've had to do that once in all my 15+ years. I rarely ever crop more than 50% of the frame away. I also don't do a heck of a lot of wildlife/bird photography, but if I did, I'd try my hardest to have a sufficiently long lens to avoid lots of cropping later.
