I read somewhere once that things take on average 42% longer than you think they will. Increase the number of people involved in a project, and a dollop of post credit crunch risk aversion, and it’s probably more like 85%
I hate writing proposals so having given birth to one, feel very chuffed and want an instant response as reward. Months go by with such proposals floating wherever they reside. Frustrated by now, I put myself in my prospect’s shoes and think – very busy and stressed, doing 3 people’s jobs, make them smile. So I send them some tick boxes and an RSVP.
All our budgets have been cut. All I have left will pay for a packet of Post It notes, one purple magic marker pen with sparkly ink and a college student from Outer Mongolia
My feet haven’t touched the ground in weeks, I feel like a human helicopter. Bear with me, I will be in touch
I have spontaneously combusted and no longer exist
Project? What project?
Any new ideas for my list?
Also, anyone out there happy to give me some interesting work without a proposal and with an instant decision!? Can’t wait!
