Today, I had a fruitful meeting where we discussed certain details. However, not all of these details were discussed. While it's irrelevant to include all the specifics here, I can share some details that have been important to me from time to time:
One more variable in a complete report that your supervisor has signed off as ready,
One more solution to a corner-case in a Product Requirements Document (PRD) that has already been reviewed and approved,
One more design variation to fix the width of a component, even if this fix isn't visible to the customer's eye,
One more commit to decrease the milliseconds of an API call that is marked as "fast" in your reports,
One more optimization tweak in a Marketing performance campaign that has achieved its monthly target.
We can't address every detail. It's impossible, at least in a product world where speed is of the essence. The truly experienced Product professional can identify the details that matter and go the extra mile to deliver them.
Do not compromise the edges that matter. ~ Seth Godin
