You don’t need more noise

Slides are noise. There are 30 million new slides made every day. No one wakes up in the morning and says, “You know what I need more of in my life? PowerPoint slides.”

What the world needs more of is the ability to take a one-hour idea and crush it down into 3 or 4 sentences.

That process is painful and reductive, and often can only be done by a third-party, because the idea generator (you) is too close to the subject.

But do it, and you will reach a level of clarity and focus that no PowerPoint deck will ever bring to you.
