ish' is Lynne Cazaly's sixth book and tackles the problems we face when we chase the elusive 'perfect' - whether we're preparing a report or presentation at work, making something or working on any of our projects in life.
Excellence, quality and continuous improvement are important. But the pursuit of perfection ...not so much.
Our drive to make things look, feel or seem perfect is dangerously on the rise and has dire consequences for how we feel about ourselves and how well we live, work and collaborate with others.
Lynne Cazaly shares the latest thinking, information and ideas on the problems of going for perfect and how caring less and being more 'ish' - which means somewhat, more or less, to some extent - is a more flexible, helpful and happier way to think and work.
ish. Near enough is so often good enough on the things that don't matter as much as we think they do. Lynne Cazaly suggests we need to care less about more, and care more about less. Make this year the year of ish.
