As the subject matter experts, rock-stars that we are, we’re often burdened with taking the customer’s challenges and needs and developing our position, messaging, and solutions for the rest of the team.
We all know it is easier to edit than create, and therein lies the challenge. After blood, sweat, and tears are invested in solution creation, the meddling fools who delegated the creation authority to us in the first place feel the need to take our effort and begin the process again from the beginning, turning over each stone.
And turning them over again. And again.
The horse is dead.
Stop beating it.
Stop thinking on our time; We’ve invested our creative effort offline, previously, and have communicated it to you with good reason. Be a professional, stay up to date, and be prepared.
The review is not the starting point; it’s the affirming close.
