Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

We've all heard this comparison time and again. Usually it's an excuse when we can't give the time to something important, many times our children, we'll justify it saying, well it's quality not quantity. Once I heard someone say would you accept that with your steak. Imagine you pay $30 for a choice steak but when it's delivered to your table it's one bite. The waiter says it's the best bite you'll ever have! Does that make a difference?

I heard an interesting take on this recently. The story told of a ceramics teacher who announced to his class they were being split into 2 groups. Group A was graded on the quantity of their work only. Group B was graded only on their quantity of pieces produced.

To his surprise group B won both prizes. Naturally they won the quantity prize because the other group made only 1 piece and worked to perfect it. Group B however found in making many pieces they were learning from their mistakes and also won the best quality piece.

What lessons can we learn from this? I've heard many say don't wait for perfect to launch. Anything else come to mind?

thanks Josh, I felt the same way. It never dawned on me but it does make sense.

I've never thought of it this way Chris, but I really like it.  Repetition is a good thing, and I'd also not thought of this from a product development standpoint - the more you do something, the more effective you can become at it - awesome stuff here.  Focusing on quantity, and tweaking quality as you go along can be a very important deal.

Practice makes progress if not perfect?
