Has your duck lost its quack?

A recent blog post by Seth Godin called: Watcha gonna do with that duck? got me thinking.

Seth said that:

We’re surrounded by people who are busy getting their ducks in a row, waiting for just the right moment…
Getting your ducks in a row is a fine thing to do. But deciding what you are you going to do with that duck is a far more important issue.

It reminded me of working in an Agile environment, where you have to get your ducks in a row to a certain extent but it is just as important to let your duck have some freedom to explore other paths as long as they come back to the flock and reach their intended destination.
