Richard's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Make sure you truly understand the problem
  2. Avoid the trap of making it look like something was easy for you in a way that devalues your effort and provokes feelings of others thinking you think they're stupid
  3. Show your work - provide the path to the answer and let your collaborators and cutomers come to the answer themselves
