Interviewed by currencytim; lots of road noise

Last month, my good friend Tim McAlpine flew down to Austin to take a roadtrip with me to surprise DeAndre with his new job, gear, and Prius.  En route to Waco, Tim flipped his recorder on… twice.  We thankfully got the second take.

If you want to hear me say some pretty off-the-wall stuff including yelling at a reckless driver at the Flying J truckstop, give this podcast a listen.

4% Less

I swore I wouldn’t do it again.  Too many bloggers clamoring for his link love.  Too many times I’ve quoted him before.  (Not to mention that interview almost three years ago now on Open Source CU that BTW never got any friggin comments).

But I can’t help it.  I have to — yet again — swoon over something said by Seth Godin.  His post: “The Sad Lie of Mediocrity”:

Doing 4% less does not get you 4% less.

Doing 4% less may very well get you 95% less.

That’s because almost good enough gets you nowhere. No sales, no votes, no customers. The sad lie of mediocrity is the mistaken belief that partial effort yields partial results. In fact, the results are usually totally out of proportion to the incremental effort.

Hear, hear.
