Seth Godin would be proud.
Me? I’m on the fence about it.
Yesterday I shipped a lengthy blog post, one with errors and sentences that made no sense, so I could honor the commitment I made to post every Monday.
I have lots of excuses for the post being a mess, like the fact that I drive two hours one way on the first Monday (yesterday) of every month to a critique group in the next state over. I know, maybe I should have taken yesterday’s article with me and had fellow writers edit it.
Nonetheless, I shipped – a phrase Seth uses often that means to take action. It was a tough decision, choosing between productivity and perfection. Not that my posts are always flawless, but I was pretty sure yesterday’s wasn’t. I sent it anyway.
It felt good to let it go until I reread it around midnight. By then, it was too late to undo. It had already been delivered to inboxes. I have since rewritten parts of it, which is why I’m posting another post so soon. To let you know, although it’s not shortened, it is fixed.
The other reason is to ask your opinion. Which is more important, shipping or shooting for perfection?
WRite wHere I’m supposed to be – I couldn’t not give an explanation for yesterday’s post. That’s how I float, I mean, roll. I’m anxious to hear your priority.
