Do it perfectly – first time

Duck and lined up ducklings crossing a road

We learn as we go, especially when doing something new.

Yet how many times do we stop, hesitate, procrastinate because we are worried that something we want to do might turn out poorly, or even fail?

“Nothing would be done at all, if a man waited till he could do it so well, that no one could find fault with it.” – Anon

Even when you set off for your regular supermarket shop, you are not sure of a perfect outcome, but because you have done it before, because you have relevant experience, you know you can manage what happens. So you make a start. You go.

If we always wait for experience, we would do nothing, achieve nothing. Is that what you want?

What are your current ‘hesitations’?

What are you waiting for?

Maybe it’s like the duckling story here.

My best wishes, Paul
