How to Keep an Open Mind During Editing

One of the most difficult parts of creating a presentation is the process of editing. Not because it takes a lot of effort or is particularly time intensive, but rather because editing your presentation is difficult due to an inability to look at it objectively. Here’s the reality: When you create something, you become close to that project. In many ways, that presentation becomes a work of art and something that you care deeply about. However, during the editing process, you must look at your p...
