How often should we be excellent? Is it a percentage?

What about that percentage of our customers that get less than our excellent work?

Is that fair to them?

And do they notice the absence right away, or is it easy to fool them?

How do we justify giving some less than our best?

Is it because it’s so hard to set high standards and maintain them 100% of the time?




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
