We're always looking for new ways to do things, and one of my colleagues came up with this cool new content revision strategy. It's especially good for people who hate revising, aren't sure what the heck revising is, or are always in too much of a hurry to bother with revising in the first place.

  1. Draft as much as you can as fast as you can; don’t stop until you hit the “end”.
  2. Highlight your key points.
  3. Delete anything that isn’t related to your key points.
  4. Patch up transitions and sentence structure as needed.
  5. Read aloud, correct remaining errors and then file.

This process took less than 20 minutes and cut the original document from 2500+ words to just over 900. Not bad.

So, you gonna give it a try?
