    Well now Clockwinder Tenk, this puts me in the mind of the Church of the Builder; as well as one of the most endearing aspects of the Steampunk Ethic.

    I’ve brought it inworld and posted it around town some, especially in clockhaven where all the luddites fester and brood.

      i need to take this to heart! and copied here from above link:

       

      1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.

      2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.

      3. There is no editing stage.

      4. Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it.

      5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.

      6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.

      7. Once you’re done you can throw it away.

      8. Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from being done.

      9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.

      10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.

      11. Destruction is a variant of done.

      12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.

      13. Done is the engine of more.

    Everyone falls and often ..  in fact it is key to improvement, growth & achievement in anything mho !

    The catch is to always try to fall forward ..

     

    To be honest this List &  variations of the above List are used a great deal daily ..

    Out of Box example to take note to:

      Swimming with Sharks (also known as The Boss and Buddy Factor) .

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swimming_with_Sharks

    Versus … one-minute manager.. ((*that we all used to just laugh at ! I might add *))

    (( Sharks ..  just being off the wall way to achieve  while OMM ..is an example just being by the book… The first tends to be off the wall but the achievement is  achieved with a quick hit comedy/dry humor/drama .. the second well just .. plays out and on .. and on and on …  ))

    Point : Some People shouldn’t be so quick to think they got everything covered or better yet others have no purpose ie have nothing in common with them.

     Bottom in any World ..One just never knows ……………..
