One of our worst traits can be perfectionism. Stymied by our desire to make sure that everything is perfect before doing something, the we are in danger of never moving forward because we don’t ACT.
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time online. ūüėČ In addition to time spent on my laptop and desktop, mobile apps, and Instagram, my facebook timeline, twitterfeeds and emails stream directly to my smartphone.

It was drizzly. An evening networking event at an outdoor location. It would have been so easy to skip it, give a lame excuse the next day, and move on.
But I went anyway.
After using my drink ticket and strafing the buffet of appetizers, I found myself searching the room for someone to talk to.
Group of seven people, laughing a little too hard in the corner? No. Intense duo exchanging business cards near the bar? No. Dude looking around like the Terminator, scanning for prospects over the shoulders of his group? No way.
