I find that I’m least clumsy when I’m busy — no time for mistakes. Maybe it’s my mild obsessiveness or maybe it’s just good organization, but when I have a plan mapped out I can go and go until it’s completed.

I make a list so that I have definite items that I can check off when I finish them — I think that’s the key.
