I strive to get things done right the first time, and increasingly, I do. But sometimes, that high intention becomes an obstacle to doing anything at all.

Case in point. My speakers buzzed after we got our new internet service. Eventually I realized the buzz was through my speakers, and from there, I figured out that the buzz was because the technician had placed the modem on top of my speaker.

Okay. So I planned to clear out a cabinet to put the modem in. That would take a while, so I wasn't getting to it. But just now, I moved the modem to another table and the buzzing stopped. It took one minute max to actually do. It was a good thing for me to do what I had put off because I wanted to do the great thing. Note to Jim Collins - Sometimes, great is the enemy of good.
