Well, you just cant win them all. We received word yesterday that we lost the bid that I wrote about in my last blog post. It was months of preparations, tweaks and changes and an incredible learning experience for me.
Submitting a bid for large commercial projects will always run a risk of not winning the job and when that happens we need to stop for moment and take stock of what is really important. It would be very easy to wallow in self-pity or play the victim card. With any creative project, you put your all into your work and once you put it out there, you have to leave it out there. I think that is the hardest part of it all. At the end of the day, be proud of the work presented, know you brought your best to the table and hope for a better outcome the next time around.
You can never please everyone so start with yourself and never beat yourself up over something that is out of your control.
And its on to the next one…
