Polishing To Perfection

Tiago Forte – @fortelabs:

“A paradoxical thing about people who consistently choose the most high leverage activity is their efforts have a rough-edged, half-assed quality.

Because polishing things to perfection is a low leverage activity.”

Good insight. I have a strong academic background (half my career) where polishing is commonplace. Moving to the commercial world, where polishing is still rampant, made me realise this insight more forcibly.
