You see the big picture and it is clear to you. However, it’s tough on others when you can move too fast so you don’t bring your audience with you. They probably do not have the background, experience and context you have on your topic.
You will lose others unless you can translate more simply to others.
For example, I told a client just today, “You are capable of swallowing a watermelon of information in one gulp, but some around you are struggling to swallow a marshmallow!”
That’s why you have to put your knowledge into memorable, bite-sized pieces to get true traction with your audience. Is it frustrating? Yes, but over the long run, you’ll get more done.
