Before you do anything, make sure its worth it.
Because if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right. When you do things right it takes extra effort. It’s effort you don’t mind making because you have decidedit’s worth it.
But if you aren’t sure, you’ll cut corners. You’ll do it in a half-hearted way. You’ll waste your time. And as a result you’ll surely fail.
Keep this in mind:
Everyone underestimates how hard it is to do something new. Everytime you price what a new project, house or business is going to cost, you underestimate. Everytime you estimate how long a project will take, you underestimate. So realize, in spite of your best efforts, anything you decide to dois going to take much more effort and money than you think.
In fact, when you start something you don’t how long or how much it will cost to wrap the thing up. One thing you don’t want to do is get half way through and stop.
So before you start…make sure it’s worth it, or you’ll just waste money and time, and be left with a sour taste in your mouth.
