WHAT’S WANTED v WHAT’S NEEDED by Dave Trott ›

I can’t tell you how much I strug­gle with the notion of sup­ply­ing a client with a few options for them to see. They invari­ably pick the one that’s weak­est. Maybe it’s that per­ceived lack of gump­tion that stops me doing say­ing some­thing a long these lines:

“I don’t think you under­stand how this works, Steve.
I don’t do options. I will solve the prob­lem, and you will pay me. It’s up to you whether or not you use my solu­tion, that’s your choice. But I don’t do options.
I will give you my solu­tion, and you will pay me. That’s how it works.”
