Reducing anxiety

Answered by Dick Gorelick

Perhaps it's my nature, but I suffer from high anxiety when I turn over an electronic file on a job that simply must be done right and on time. Is there any way to reduce my anxiety by improving the chances that all will go well in the production process?

Bear in mind that job specifications should go beyond a description of the physical product. Communicate the importance of a job in writing. Explain the reason(s) it deserves special treatment. It may involve a product launch, a sensitive mail date, or elevated liability. Also, make an early morning daily status report part of the specifications. Having done this, do everything possible to help your supplier do its job. This includes the timely return of proofs.
