Seth’s Blog: The myth of preparation

http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2010/09/the-myth-of-preparation.html?…

I’m all for expertise. Experts, people who push through and make something stunning—we need more of them. But let’s be honest, if you’re not in the habit of being an expert, it’s unlikely your current mode of operation is going to change that any time soon.

Go, give a speech. Go, start a blog. Go, ship that thing that you’ve been hiding. Begin, begin, begin and then improve. Being a novice is way overrated.
