Big Little Things

If you have to tell yourself it’s fine, it’s not

You might have noticed that things have been quiet on tiny gigantic for the past coupla weeks. That’s because Josh and I have been working hard on a food activism project that’s gonna launch any day now. Actually, it was supposed to launch a whole fucking month ago, and it almost did. Thank jeebus it didn’t.

We’d been working on this project for about 3 months and it felt like the project took longer than it should have. We really wanted to get it out the door, but when it was a day away from launching, Josh pushed to kill it and start over. I had a whole bunch of reasons why the project was fine as it was, and that was how I knew Josh’s instinct was right. If you have to tell yourself it’s fine, it’s not.

Now, one month later, the project is reborn and SO MUCH BETTER. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve done.

Yet another lesson we learned the hard way:
There is gold to be found in forcing yourself to start over when you’ve settled for something that’s good enough. And once you’ve started over and made something new and seemingly perfect, force yourself to polish it a little more.

    Really entertaining stuff you’ve got here. I happened across “How To Be A Better Lover” by accident – I didn’t realize it was business-oriented! Really genius any how.

    Today was a great day for me to happen upon “If you have to tell yourself it’s fine, its not.” Thanks for a great post.
