The power in a meaningful company doing work that matters is in the people’s will to sustain the pursuit of being better. Nobody can take that away from you besides you.

Following yesterday’s notes on over-achievers overdoing things, here are 3 things to stop over-doing:
- Practice: If practice makes perfect, and perfect doesn’t exist, why overdo practice? Maybe it’s time to stop practicing (or researching) and take action.
- Risk-assessment: Over-doing this makes a case for the safer, neutral, conservative option. What if it’s time to make a difference?
- Worry: This is mental-training for worst-case scenarios. Might it be better to replace it with experience, where that training is all for naught?
Over-achievers like to go fast. Try slowing down around the 3 corners above and see how it affects your lap time.
