When a mother duck wants to walk across the road and get to the pond, does she just wait calmly until her ducklings all get into a perfect little line?

Does she scream and peck at them until they line up?


She just turns away from them, faces the direction she needs them to go, and starts waddling.

Guess what happens?

Exactly. The ducklings quickly scurry into a line and follow her across the road.


Just Be a Duck:

#1 Be a model for what you’d like others to do.

#2 Don’t wait for conditions to be perfect before you take action.



Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.

– Samuel Johnson
