Good and delivered is better than perfect

Posted by Dermot Crowley on 7th August 2017

OK, this article will be short. But it will be done, and will be available for you to read. This is better than having it remain unwritten in my head, I reckon.

So, we all have too much to do. And sometimes that means that we get behind. And that causes stress. This article is a good example. I try not to live hand-to-mouth with articles and newsletter. I try to write the one that goes out in six weeks today, not the one due to go out today. But sometimes even I (he says with an ironic smile), get behind.

The story I tell myself when in this situation is that I need a couple of hours to craft the perfect message, with the perfect image that will create the perfect learning for you, my dear reader. But I don’t have a couple of hours to spare today. So here it is, a fifteen-minute musing on itself. How Seinfeld!

In my head this newsletter was longer, probably much better, and about how to focus a conversation to reduce the disruption of an interruption. (Look out for that in a couple of weeks). But I reckon that good and delivered is better than excellent in my head. I hope you agree.
