Pretty in Perspective

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

It’s amazing how different things look from the outside.

Time and time again, I find that one of the powerful contributions I make to my clients is by showing them things only an outsider could see.

It’s nearly always true that you can’t see the picture when you’re standing in the frame. It’s especially true, interestingly, when framing your own accomplishments.

I’d like to meet the one or two people on the planet (if that many) who could effectively write their own resume, without any input. Award submissions are very similar.

How are you at keeping things pretty in perspective?
