Graph of Success Rate by Mediocrity

“Be fearful of mediocrity.”

Just thought I’d stick in a deep meaningful quote so you’ll think I’m really wise and clever and philosophical and all that stuff. Understandably, of course, when you start out, your work may be mediocre by public standards (Hopefully your work moves towards the “good” end of the spectrum, and not the other way around…)

But mediocrity is never something you should aim for. Avoid it like you’d avoid the bubonic plague in the Byzantine Empire.

Please refer to the graph below for a semi-quantitative representation of how the good, the bad and the mediocre work.
