The common expression “Haste makes waste” holds true to this day. Often when we get busy and rush, we forget to check the details or take time to carefully consider alternatives before making decisions. Failure to check into the facts or research possible alternatives can often result in moving in ways that are not the most suitable to advance us towards our goals. Poor decisions can lead to a waste of time and money and strain on our relationships. Moreover, they can lead to back-tracking and redoing things. This often adds unnecessary stress and complication to our lives.
A little extra time spent on doing some research at the beginning of a project and laying a foundation can make a big difference to finding success, no matter how big or small that project might be.
What happened the last time you rushed through something? Is there something you are working on right now where getting some additional information would help you?
