I Couldn’t Wait

Delaying gratification is an important skill that correlates to lots of other positive outcomes. So don’t eat the marshmallow. Wait the 15 minutes, and you’ll get two. Plus, you’ll probably score higher on your SAT’s.

Does the imperative for delayed gratification apply to creative work? If we’ve made something and we’re ready to ship it, to share it with our friends, can we publish it early? Would a band ever release their new album a month early because their fans really want it and it’s finished anyway?

Why wait? If it’s done, ship it. Who cares if it’s early?

All this to say that my podcast for this week is a day early. I had a great conversation with Aric Clark, and I’m eager to share it. So I am. Because I can.
