“Just let the ragged end drag.” That’s what my mom said to me when I was telling her about a decision I was trying to make at work. I am in charge of a grant that has to be zeroed out or totally spent by the end of the fiscal year. I don’t know how much to hang on to and how much to spend. I can’t have any left over at the end of the year, but I also have nowhere else to get more, should I run out too early. Too much pressure!
She told me to do the best I could with the information I had and “just let the ragged end drag.” In other words, it doesn’t all have to be perfect.
Okay. I’m going to let the ragged end drag…like Linus. 🙂
Are you able to let the ragged end drag at times? Are you a perfectionist? Does everything have to come out just so?
