Whether is writing a blog post, creating a video, or making a marketing plan, if you sit around theorizing about the perfect way to do it, you won't get any closer to perfect.

We like to imagine that the longer we have to do something, the more time we have to think and plan and edit the better the end result. But in reality it is almost never extra time that gets us great results, it is extra reps.

In this episode:
- An example from two groups of pottery students
- Perfection is a byproduct
- Mistaking a byproduct for a precondition
- Art and Fear by Bayles and Orland (https://www.amazon.com/Art-Fear-Observations-Rewards-Artmaking/dp/0961454733)

The standard approach to getting a job is to go out to a business and with a resume and interview tell employers about your skills and experience.

It’s the equivalent of saying “Here I am, I have skills.”

It creates work for the business to figure out if those skills are relevant, legitimate, or even valuable and as a result, it doesn’t help you find the best opportunities.

The better approach is to do the work yourself and come to a business with a pitch on how you will create value.

Instead of writing about how you have SEO skills, send in an analysis and plan of the companies SEO.

Instead of listing your excel skills, send in a spreadsheet you made that could be valuable for there work.

Instead of saying that you can create value, actually create value and watch how many opportunities it will open for you.

In this episode:

- Product beats paper 
- What a generic resume tells employers

  • The rough draft mindset
  • Producing before seeking help
  • Theoretical problems
