GOOMH, Godin (part three)

If you make a big deal about not trying to please everyone, and still run yourself ragged pandering to your members, you may be a part of an under-99 seat (dues-paying) theatre company:
A motto for those doing work that matters:

"We can't please everyone, in fact, we're not even going to try."

[...]

The math here is simple. As soon as you work hard to please everyone, you have no choice but to sand off the edges, pleasing some people less in order to please others a bit more. And it drives you crazy at the same time.
Emphasis his.  (From Seth Godin's blog.)
