Two Out of Three is Fine


First the link: Neil Gaiman 2012 Commencement 14:18

“But people keep working in a freelance work, and more and more of today’s world is freelance because their work is good and because they’re easy to get along with and because they deliver the work on time… and you don’t even need all three. Two out of three is fine.”

Isn’t this INTERESTING?
Let’s run the metric here:

  • Your work doesn’t need to be that good if you deliver on time, and you are easy to get along with.
  • Your work doesn’t need to be on time if it’s good and you are easy to get along with.
  • You can be a bit of a jerk if your work is good, and you deliver on time.

Apparently there are plenty of jerks in the world (I don’t know any), and people are just happy to be working with the nice ones.

Cheers!
