Lessons Learned, Part 1

kelsey-polaHas it really been six months already? My goodness how time flies when you’re having fun! The past six months have been a whirlwind of unexpected highs, stubborn lows and a few in-betweens.

Everyone here at Zag thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and relive some of those lessons we have learned – thus, every day this week will be a new post from a different Zag-ger. I’ll go ahead and give you a few of my own:

  • Tomorrow is always a new day. If it’s not a must for a project to get out the door that same very day, don’t force it. Creativity will fall below par, and the project itself could become a bust, where you just have to do it all over again the next day.
  • Allow yourself some time to think. Agency life can be extremely hectic. Instead of constantly going, going and going, take a break and try to enjoy the little things. (i.e. this blog – it’s nice to reflect.)
  • The client is mostly right, but not every single time. Just because a client has an idea of what they should be doing, that doesn’t mean it’s always the best or the most practical. It’s your job to go in and see what is going to get them their best ROI.

I think I’ll leave my list to three for today, but get ready, because tomorrow will be Alex’s turn to shed some light on agency life. Enjoy!
