The old duck metaphor.

ducks

A story on myself.

I am in the middle of a small project that requires considerable collaboration amongst people not used to collaborating. Always challenging.

In a conversation over the weekend with an old mate, wise in the ways of start-ups, he offered me a gentle shove by saying:

“Sometimes people spend huge amounts of time and energy getting their ducks in a row. Pity it does not really matter what they look like, it is what you do with the ducks that counts”.

Ouch.

What are you doing with your ducks?
