Moving forward with meaning

Does anyone read a blog post because it has no typos?

No, they read it because it touches them or moves them.

I heard Seth Godin make this point on a podcast this morning and it really resonated with me.

Perfectionism can be debilitating, but we need to leave it behind if we want to make change happen. The user interface doesn’t need to be perfect for people to love it. Your website doesn’t need to be finished for you to teach someone a new skill. You don’t need a logo to make an impact in a personal interaction.

You need to be honest. You need to be generous. You need to be real. None of those things require perfection to work.

So let’s stop worrying about perfect and start moving forward with meaning.
