No Ragrets tattoo


Seth-urday post today is about difference between a blemish and a tattoo. In “Tattoo Thinking”, he urges people to realise that most things you do in life do not have the permanence of tattoos…

  • “A tattoo is basically forever. You should think pretty hard before you get one, because it’s largely an irreversible decision. Just about every choice you make with your project and your career, though, doesn’t last forever. And the benefit of taking a risk is significantly higher than it is with a tattoo. A landing page, a pricing move, a bit of copy–they don’t last much more than a day, never mind a lifetime. Higher benefits, lower risk, what are you waiting for? So go ahead and act as if your decisions are temporary. Because they are. Be bold, make mistakes, learn a lesson and fix what doesn’t work. No sweat, no need to hyperventilate.”

And frankly, even tattoos can be removed (with a bit of expense and discomfort).
