Do you ever get overwhelmed by a project? All the parts there are to it. The way you are going to have to do all the steps that are hard and annoying. They have so many steps and attributes to track.
This does not seem to matter. You have to do the project anyways. Your boss assigned it to you. The government expects you to do your taxes. Your car needs to be repaired. You need to see the doctor for the chronic issue you are still having.
You do not get to skip a step in this process. You have to get it all. You cannot afford to miss anything. At the end of the day, if you miss something it only causes bigger issues.
Using a cheaper option for the supplier in the project costs you quality. Not seeing the doctor costs you sick days. Not getting your car fully repaired will lead to more car issues in the long run. Not doing your taxes will lead to the government fining you and cost you more money than the taxes you need to pay.
When you slow down and hit every step, checkbox, and detail possible, you pay for the whole thing up front and you do not have to keep paying for it over and over again. Best of all, you pay less in the long run too.
How great would it be for everything to cost less in life because you did it right the first time?
Take your time, do it right the first time.
No matter how much I want to so it right the first time. I get impatient and skip ahead. I let myself get overwhelmed and anxious by the size of the project and the ambiguity of the unknown. When I stop, breath, and take my time. I never regret it.
