Penny Perfect and Sally Sloppy
Adults may say “just do your best” but what we may really be communicating may be totally different. The two characters in this fable react to this typical parent saying differently but both will end up unhappy.
One of the more difficult things for all of us to decide is, "When is a task good enough” or “Not done yet.” Penny is too concerned about being perfect or being ridiculed while Sally just wants to be "finished". Consequently, these young spiders never have completed webs much to their regret.
