Join Bonnie Siegler for an in-depth discussion in this video Nothing takes a second, part of Working with Creatives.
- Sometimes clients will ask us to make changes…or explore a path that they say will just take a second.…We aren't sure if they really think…it will be as easy as flicking a light switch,…or if they're just trying to downplay the extra work.…I would translate them saying this to…I want you to do something extra,…but I don't think it should cost us anything…because, you know, it'll just take a second.…But I'm here to tell you, definitively,…that nothing takes a second.…
And at best, the request is dismissive of our time.…At worst, it's dismissive of the value of our work.…That change will, in fact,…take time because everything does.…Knowing that and respecting that will make…a huge difference in your relationship.…Also, just for a second,…think about how bad the outcome would be…if it really did just take a second.…We wouldn't have time to put any thought…into how the change might affect anything else,…or even how this change should be handled at all.…
And this works two ways,…you too should take all the time you need to review the work…
