That's Just Wrong

This one is for all you perfectionists out there. Yes, my hand is half-raised, too.

Biotech engineer, Safi Bahcall recently gave a great tip to help—Write FBR. When he's working on writing, he does it Fast, Badly and Wrong. The sentences might be a mess and the initial facts wrong, but the overall story and journey are what's important. Too often we focus on the details at the cost of the big picture.

Take this email. My first draft was done in 5-minutes with Safi's name completely butchered, but the main ideas and flow were there. This means I can churn out these emails in an hour or so each week versus aiming for perfection.

What in your life do you need to do FBR.
