Finish Your Presentation in Twice the Time!
One of the biggest arguments I hear against creating better presentations is that it takes so much longer. And it’s true. It does take longer to create a better presentation. Much, much longer in fact. But as is the case in so many different disciplines, the extra work is worth it.
So, here’s my challenge to you: Spend twice as long on your next presentation. If you would normally spend thirty minutes, spend an hour instead. If you normally spend an hour, spend two. Just humor me and budget for the extra time. Spend that time doing the same things you normally do, just do them for longer.
Ideate longer. Develop content longer. Edit, organize, design, and build longer. Double the time spend on each step.
My guess is the presentation will be more than twice as good.
