Perfectionists have trouble finishing. That becomes a problem when others rely on them.


Leo Tolstoy

"If you look for perfection, you'll never be content."

If that explanation you're hearing just don't make no sense and the explanations that follow make even less sense...methinks the person doth communicate too much.


Alexander Hamilton

"The obscurity is more often in the passions and prejudices of the reasoner than in the subject."

A Baker's Thought: It's easy to eat a cake, it's harder to make one, and it's even harder to create a cake recipe.

If you don't see any cakes, check first to see if your people have cake recipes. 

Another Baker's Thought: Most of the time when people don't do what you expect it is because they do not know how!

[Don't Tell them To - Show them How]


Now see, I do listen.

Not as often as I should.

Not as well as I should.

 It's a process...
