The Corrections

Getting through a demanding stretch of projects can come with quite the sense of accomplishment. When things end, it can really feel awesome. But rather than jump into the next project, it’s helpful, in the long run, to take an honest assessment of the demanding stretch and what course corrections may need to be taken. Maybe future projects need a better brief. Perhaps the process needs to be reviewed more in advance. The rationale could be explained better. The presentation could be more compelling. Or the work needs to be better, more refined, or not settled on. And it probably wouldn’t hurt to be extra clear about what it is you do, why you do it, how you go about it, and what the outcome looks like. Make a habit of correcting when needed and you will continue to get better at what you do.
