- Your level of knowledge as the expert is greater than 95% of the people who read your article, see your presentation etc. To be factually correct, present the information in a way that people can understand, and then use it, is the key. Only you will know the difference between the final version and one written several hours ago. Use that extra time to do the next main thing.
- If you have the same attitude re the work done by others in the business it makes a difference. It’s not about letting standards slip but accepting that to do any more adds no additional value. This makes a difference to how others work and their connection and commitment to the output.
- I’m all for going the extra mile for a client but again there’s a balance between delivering what they’ve asked for, giving added value, and delivering on time or even early. If you’ve delivered exactly as agreed and can deliver early so the client gets even more benefit isn’t that better than delivering what you think is something even better but just in time?
- The difference between perfection and enough is very subjective: there are times that even your perfect may not be enough in someone else’s opinion. When you want to do that bit extra stop and ask yourself why? Who am I really doing it for me or them?
- If you think that improvements can be made then deliver as agreed but discuss with the client what you see the next stage would be… see if they agree, there maybe other things that they would to add/change/improve on so it can be a version 2 that’s agreed and funded.
Enough’s enough… Five reasons why its better to call time…
- Do you have a box of dreams?
- How do you see your life… are there still six degrees of separation?
- Black Friday and Cyber Monday – Beneficial to businesses or does it attract the wrong kind of customer?
- Goals and targets – carrots or sticks?
- What are your vital statistics? Do you know your figures and how do you use them?
