You worked tirelessly on your latest proposal – you were at the
office late, ironing out every detail and making sure every section read
perfectly. You should feel good about it…but did you spell everything
correctly? Is your proposal good enough to swear bye...uh oh!!
While spell-check is a must, it doesn’t help you with homonyms
or words that sound similar but can have totally different meanings. If
your proposal is to help bolster employment opportunities for returning soldiers,
it doesn’t look good for your proposal if you are looking to help retuning solders.
Fortify your proposal and take time to re-read everything
carefully before you print and if available, have a colleague or consultant
serve as a reviewer. The adage says to ‘measure twice, cut once’ and the
same thinking should be used with the spelling for your next proposal: read
twice, and you’ll improve your win chances (and help you catch changes early so
hopefully you only need to print once!)
