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.
