Why is proofreading so hard?

People proofread ineffectively because of:

  • Lack of time.
    • We’re expected to proofread in moments when we need minutes.
  • Lack of patience.
    • We’re desperate to send off now what we’ve written.
  • Lack of skills.
    • 90% have had no proofreading training.

Therefore, we need pals to proofread our documents after we’ve done our best.
