Not Letting the Perfect Become the Enemy of the Good

In this podcast, I talk about my third rule for being an effective lobbyist, which is not letting the perfect become the enemy of the good. While you or your client may love your bill, it is important to remember that most of the time, it is not achievable to get 100% of what is initially in your bill. You need to know where to draw the line when it comes to what you’re willing to compromise.
