Catfucius says again...

Dear peeps:

Several of you have asked me about the point of my previous Catfucius Says post. I put it out there because I think that's one of the biggest life lessons I've learned. Especially for Asians, we tend to be a bit hesitant, out of fear of failure. I remember dealing with an Asian junior associate on a closing. She was so fearful of making mistakes that she proof read everything five times, and there were like twenty documents! People were so annoyed at her at the end that she was taken off the next closing. In truth, she was a very detail oriented person, and of all the people, she probably didn't have to be that cautious. I guess at certain points, once we've proof read once or twice and used our smarts and thought through the pros and cons, we need to make a decision and get on with life!
