More Editing and Tweaking Is Just Another Form of Procrastination

Which helps no one

Spending days writing an article or a blog post hoping it’ll go viral makes no sense at all as there’s no correlation between the number of hours you spend editing your piece and its success.

I’ve seen this happen hundreds of times.

And the same is true for any other creations: movies, podcasts, websites, paintings, products, services, lesson plans, and anything else that requires human creativity.

Once your creation is good enough, it is ready for the world to see.

Release it and move on.

Now, the funny thing is that I’ve spent the past 20 minutes tweaking this post.

Don’t be like me.
