ish : The Problem with our Pursuit for Perfection and the Life-Changing Practice of Good Enough



'Ish: The Problem with our Pursuit for Perfection and the Life Changing Practice of Good Enough' is Lynne Cazaly’s sixth book and it identifies the problems with us chasing the elusive perfect whether we are preparing a presentation or a birthday cake, working alone in our own business or as an employee in a team or on a project.

There’s no doubt that excellence, quality and continuous improvement have an important role to play in business and in our daily lives. But the pursuit of perfection …not so much. Our drive to make things look, feel or seem ‘perfect' is dangerously on the rise and it has dire consequences for how we feel about ourselves and how well we are able to work or collaborate with others.

From her experience working with leaders, business owners and individuals, Lynne Cazaly shares the latest information on the problems with us thinking we need to make things perfect and how there are many options, choices and alternatives that will make us happier and help us create, make and deliver things of greater value and meaning.

The concept of ‘ish’ - which means somewhat, more or less, to some extent - is a more flexible and valuable way to think and work. And it’s a practice; it’s a way of being, doing, thinking, having.


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 — adopting a practice of good enough can make so many things more wonderful, valuable and worthwhile.

--> Earlier versions of this book were made available while it was being written. The next version that will be on sale will be the 'final' edition/final version.

Why? You can't write a book about near enough, good enough, increments and iterations and then act like a perfectionist! Readers of earlier versions of this book have provided feedback, insights and comments about their learning and experience reading it. These have been taken into consideration and used to create the final iteration which be on retail sale from June 1, 2019.
