Life is full of moments we wish we had back. No one is perfect, everyone knows that. Yet, the term perfectionist exists. This stems from a deep-seeded belief that everything can be thoroughly planned out and executed.
Our process of decision making furnishes the opportunity to weigh the pros and cons before proceeding. Some of us bypass this opportunity, for example, lets tune into the life of Martin Beetle. His self-proclaimed brilliance has never been confirmed.
"Martin! I thought you were driving the foster kids to the Friendship Camp!" his boss lividly confronts him.
"I was going to but found an affordable transit service that only charges a hundred bucks. It's within our budget and I can continue working on securing accounts."
"Unbelievable! I'm guessing you didn't read the fine print! Anything over twenty miles and we get charged ten dollars a mile! Plus, add in the three hours of pay the driver receives for waiting to bring them back. Combine those and what do you get? A bill for 600.00 dollars!"
"That's impossible!" Martin says as he scurries to find the contract. "The camp is only nine miles from here."
"Yes, but the directions you gave him were to the Cider Mill, which is next week's assignment and is thirty miles away. Dammit! Do the math! This isn't the first time you've cost me money!"
"I guess this means I'm fired?"
"THAT, assessment, my friend is pure genius. You can leave your keys on the desk."
