Daniel Lawrence Whitney’s character, Larry the Cable Guy, would be really frustrated with Lucy. Lucy went through a two year graduate program and took an incomplete in every class. Every one.
Lucy was a perfectionist. She always imagined one more way a paper or a project could be improved. She didn’t want to submit it until it was as good as possible. So everything was late.
Don’t act like Lucy. Take the advice of Larry the Cable Guy. Get ‘er done.
A book you haven’t finished won’t boost your reputation or your fees. A blog post you never post won’t dazzle anyone. Get ‘er done.
The only projects that make a difference for you are the ones you finish. Get ‘er done.
