The value of quantity over quality ↦
In a post about overestimating our short-term ability and underestimate our long-term ability, Paavan drops this nugget:
It’s important to recognise the value of quantity over quality. This is best illustrated by an anecdote that I first heard from Kevin Cannon at PUSH Conference: a potter who spends time making 100 vases will end up with one that’s better quality than if they spent the same amount of time trying to just make 1 perfect vase. So, while quality is obviously important, focussing on quantity at the start of a creative journey is the way to get there.
I’ve never heard that anecdote before, but I absolutely love the truth it so clearly represents.
