As Close as Necessary to Perfect

The thing is, with limitless focus and energy, just about everything can be improved.

That’s not the question.

The question is: Is this thing you’re working on as close to perfect as it needs to be? As close to perfect as your customer demands? As close to perfect as the budget can allow?

It’s not settling to walk away from something that’s CNP. It’s simply a smart allocation of your resources.

Hi. I’m Seth Godin. I’m a teacher, and I do projects.

For more than thirty years, I’ve been trying to turn on lights, inspire people and teach them how to level up. This blog has been appearing daily for more than a decade. One day, if we meet, I hope you’ll share with me your favorite posts. Even better, I’d like to hear about how a book or course helped you interact with the world differently and make a difference.
