The ship that never starts never arrives.

“You might not write well every day, but you can always edit a bad page.  You can’t edit a blank page.” ~Jodi Picoult

Those who read these daily comics know that the quote is true.  Not every missive is a good one, but I TRY to get something out every day that I’m working.  I’ve been proud of some of them, and just “mailed it in” on occasion, due to writers block.

The point, leaders, is to get started.  A ship that never gets started moving is the only one that is GUARANTEED to never reach its destination.  Ships that start moving in ANY direction can correct course, and will eventually arrive at the goal.  I’m not advocating a Ready-Fire-Aim philosophy.  You should think about your goal, and war-game the possible obstacles and resolutions, but you have to eventually start moving, and sooner is usually better than later.  Otherwise, what you’ve got is a philosophy of Ready-Aim-Aim-Aim-Aim……

Speaking of blank pages…
