Avoid the Three P’S

Perfection, Procrastination, Paralysis

“Have Fun! Misery is Optional!”

Jean Westcott

“Humor is such a great gift—why leave it to chance?”

Joel Goodman

The only place that perfect people exist are in fictional books and movies. That’s because errors can be edited out. In the real world, we muddle through without dress rehearsals or editors. As a result, if you use humor, you must learn how to handle an occasional “bomb” along the way. How many times have you struggled to decide whether a story was funny or stupid, only to discover that by the time you decided it was worth telling, the time for telling it had passed. Don’t hold your sense of humor captive waiting for the perfect time or the perfect story.
