My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “Good, Fast and Cheap.”
If you’ve ever worked for a large corporation, you’re probably familiar with the phrase, “You can only pick two: good, fast or cheap.”
The idea is that you can create a new product that’s good in a short timeframe if you’re willing to pay enough. Or, you can create a product that’s good and cheap, but it’s going to take some time. Or, you can make a product that’s fast and cheap, but it’s not going to be very good.
Expecting to produce a product that’s good, fast and cheap just isn’t realistic. The same principle applies to job searching.
