"Get all your ducks in a row and then . . ."
Screw that. You have one duck. Start with that. The rest of the ducks will come.
If you want to be a doctor, then yes, you'll need to get all your ducks in a row and go to school for years and years. That's what it takes to be a doctor.
I'm not talking about becoming a doctor. I'm talking about positive life change.
If you're wanting a positive life change or to master the self, you don't need all your ducks in a row. Just one duck. We all have at least one duck. Just start. Now. With your one little duck.
