A Saturday Pontification – Do it Right the First Time

There often seems to be not enough time to do something right the first time, but there is always a way to find the time to correct poorly done work when you have to later. 

~~~Thus sayeth The Old Silly~~~

    Good point! I’m not the most patient person, so sometimes I struggle with this (I’m always in a hurry…)

    That is soooo true! Why just a few moments ago, I did NOT take the time to pour my Diet Dr Pepper into the glass the right way and then? It took even longer to fix it.

    But on the other hand. I got to drink lots more in order to fix it. And this is a bad thing how?

    I agree. I have a saying along these same lines, “Touch it once”.

    Which is why 99.99 percent of authors need to read and revise their manuscripts at least three times, maybe more.

  17. Jeannine Gardella / Jan 30 2010 4:03 pm

    Is that kind of like “it is easier to ask forgiveness than to get permission? Same train of thought.

  18. Helen Ginger / Jan 30 2010 5:32 pm

    So true, Marvin. So true.
