    Are you saying that leaving out details is a sign of someone losing their edge?

      It can be, yes. Its part of the designer loosing interest/passion in their work.

        Oh ok - was just trying to clarify. That's been a pretty big sign for me but it's more temporary than "losing my edge" I think. If I'm doing a crit/review and I notice a lot of things are missing or if I should have caught something earlier on in the process that was obvious, 9 times out of 10 it means I need to re-engage or step away from the project for a bit to recharge.

        Also, not sure why it always sounds like you're talking away from the microphone or just a bit muffled in the podcasts. What kind of audio setup are you using?

          Thanks for the feedback!

          Was it only in the last podcast or in all of them? In the latest episode I had to record outside my office so I didn't have my good microphone.

            It also sounded a bit in-and-out on The Power of Saying "No" as well and a few others if I remember correctly. It's not a huge issue to me – just making an observation =]
