Doing something can be more important than the actual substance

October 8th, 2009

Perfectionists hate this but often doing something is more important than the actual substance.

That is the value you get from the action is more than the result.

Writing a blog has a halo effect, that is the actual writing and distribution of content on a daily basis is perceived to be high value, whether or not an observer reads each and every piece of content.

This is why entrepreneurs that focus on getting it 80% right, then evolving their product are so successful, the continual growth creates new opportunities for conversations.

The Analysis Zig Zag

September 3rd, 2008

See my post re: Zig Zag.

Everyone zig zags between over analysing and glossing over making decisions on little information.

Sometimes you need to.

It’s called attention to detail. Paying attention to the details can be perfect.ย  Customers notice and you feel great.

(it’s almost instinctive, they can tell immediately that its polished and perfect)

So how can you tell when you’ve gone too far? or your not going into enough detail.

Questions I would ask myself:

  • How to these details relate to my objective?
  • What level of effort will i have to exhert to nail those details.ย  Now double it.ย  Is the payoff still worth it?
  • Will the customer notice these? or notice the lack thereof?

Things to think about…… (maybe a little, maybe a lot haha)
