The perfectionist gets ready or lessons from a mother duck..
I am a perfectionist. First I cross my t's and dot my i's. Then, I step back and look at it a while. Then, read and reread. I ask myself if I'm ready yet. Then I ask myself if I'm SURE I'm ready. The other day I received an email that changed all that. It said I didn't have to wait until all my ducks were in a row because that's simply NOT what a mother duck does. No, she doesn't wait around for the line to form before she sets off. She just hops off the curb and waddles across knowing full well that her ducklings are forming a line and following close behind. I am practising being a better mother duck.
