In the way of good by Evan La Ruffa

In looking back, revelations that have improved the way I work were always the result of having tested something inferior before that. Rarely do we jump into the game (whatever game it is) and hit a crescendo from the outset. People who can do that are the .0001 percent, and we should probably be more forgiving with ourselves when it comes finding better, more efficient ways of doing the work we do.

Good is how we get closer to perfect, and we won't know what should be tweaked unless we run experiments. Impact, productivity, and enjoyment are the direct result of solving, launching, & iterating.

Let's not be overly precious about the things we're building.

Let's not let perfect get in the way of good... because perfect isn't the goal. Better, is.

Time spent, impact created, value added by Evan La Ruffa

Up, up, up? Close, but not quite. Down, down, up? Nah, that's not it either. Up, up, down? Surely, not. Down, up, up? There we go, now we got it!

It seems like efficiency, mission, and solutions should be our focus. Less time spent, more impact created, more value added. We gotta work smarter.

I'm finding it's all about proportionality. The more targeted we get, the closer we get to down, up, up.
