I publish a lot of content through blog posts, videos, podcasts, and articles. Sometimes the content just flows from me. Other times, though, I find myself churning while I make something perfect.

I might be worried about whether I’ve explained myself sufficiently or whether I’m going to offend someone. Whenever I get stuck like this, it costs me a lot of wasted time and effort.

This is when I refer to one of the most potent acronyms I know: G.E.F.N.

G.E.F.N. is a question that invites me to pause and ask myself whether something is Good Enough For Now.

I teach G.E.F.N. to the teams and people I work with. I even invite them to put it on a post-it and keep it visible.

You can rarely achieve perfection. So why not go for perfectly good enough for now?

You’ve got this.
