Shuping discusses how often when we’re working on a project we want that one more piece: that piece of data, that graph, the right wording, and so on, just so that everything will be perfect. But here’s the thing: Perfection can be more harmful than good. It’s a lesson that artists have to learn early on, because that one more thing can destroy everything. And the same is true in the library world. One more thing can delay a project, destroy confidence, and more. Come to this presentation to find out more about when good … is good enough.

  40. 40. I mean, for 7 years I had my library’s address spelled as: Jack Tarver Lirbary In a program that we use on a daily basis in Interlibrary Loan
  41. 41. 7 years this was printed off. 7 years we looked at it. 7 years other people looked at it. Finally...someone that didn’t borrow from us much said “Hey, ummm...you know you’ve got library spelled wrong in your address right?”

  45. 45. Instead of praising kids for trying hard, teachers typically praise them for their innate intelligence. (being smart.) Dweck has shown that this type of encouragement actually backfires, since it leads students to see mistakes as signs of stupidity and not as the building blocks of knowledge. ~ How We Decide, by Jonah Lehrer (page 52)
