The other day, I saw a great show by Tony Award winning actress Sarah Jones with a special appearance by Seth Godin. Sarah Jones does a great show as several different characters and this performance featured a dialog between Seth and a couple of those characters. At one point, he handed her a rubber duck. It served as a symbol of how most people wait to "get all your ducks in row" before they actually take the first steps towards their goal. Seth made the great point though that we don't have to wait to do that.
Then again, you may be better off with a few independent-minded ducks.
