Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? Part VI

(II) Conformity = Dispensability (continued)

How to get things done by Bre Pettis:

  1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action, and completion;
  2. Accept that everything is draft, ie not perfect;
  3. There is no editing stage;
  4. Fake it until you make it;
  5. Procrastination must be crushed;
  6. Get it done, so you can get something else done;
  7. Once you’re done, you can throw it away;
  8. Laugh at perfection
  9. Failure counts as done
  10. Doing something makes you right;
  11. Destruction is a variant of done;
  12. Done is the engine of more,
  13. If you have an idea that is published on the internet, that counts as done.

You Need To Push Hard ie. Sprint Towards Innovation.

STOP CHECKING your blog, inbox, online sites that you visit. Stop the bullshit cycle that is slowing down your productivity. You need to pull an all-nighter or two in order to make sure that you project kicks ass. You should write down the due date, post it on the wall. Godin writes down his ideas, prioritizes them, builds them, and ships them out the door. It’s a habit that produces revenue & results.
