What I DON’T mean by “thing” are deliverables like:

What I DO mean by “thing” are client outcomes like:

The deliverables in the first list may lead to the outcomes in the second list, but you can’t value price deliverables.

(ASIDE: This is what people mean when they say, “price the customer not the solution”.)

Value THEN price THEN cost.
