Entry 1.0

I have come a long way, in a short time. I must pause now and allow my soul to catch up.

Dot every “i”, and cross every “t” before you begin your next word. Such did I learn early in life. My obsessive compulsions often has me dotting my “i’s”, and crossing my “t’s” again and again.

Being careful, deliberate and detail-oriented is not the same as being obsessive-compulsive. When you are in the position of being a communicator -- which you are -- it is your job, your responsibility to make certain that the point, the message you want to get across is indeed understood. .... However Fr. LW, sometimes when anyone is busy, stressed and "flying solo," it is easy to get bogged down with the details. It is difficult to be a perfectionist as it can be a bit of a fatal flaw -- one's best and most difficult characteristic. ...... If being careful of the details is what you have always been taught and have always practiced, then it is part of your training, your second nature. ..... (However, if you are truly obsessive-compulsive--like the main character in "Monk" seen on Friday evening television-- seek help, young man!).....I do think that people who are self-critical are far-harder on themselves than anyone else would ever be.

Whether you mean this literally or figuratively, it is brave of you to put it in a blog.
