Non-Perfection Mindset

The Perfectionist in you has standards. That’s good.

But don’t let perfect be the enemy of good!

“Good enough” is almost always good enough.

What will you create, finish, and ship today?

Send the email. Write the blog post. Shoot the video pitch.

When you send and ship, you jump to the top 10% of job hunters.

Grades and degrees don’t matter

If you’re looking to stand out on the job hunt, don’t say, “I studied X,” say “I created Y and here’s proof.”

As CEO of GoodUnited Nick Black says,

“You gotta stand out, and you gotta be different. I’m not looking for people that have good grades. I don’t give a sh*t. But we’re looking for people that are committed, that are different, and that are willing to put the work in.”
