"Accepted" is one of those funny words... I feel like we're talking
about submissions to Atlantic Monthly.

Anyway, the simple answer is: If you want your boss/client/customer/user
to accept your work, give them what they want.

If you think they want the wrong thing, try first to show them why
something else would be better. Don't just give them what you think they
*should* want.
