1 Ounce of preperation...
I wanted to tell a little story, that I used to tell my new team members when they first came on board. It's an important outlook to take for many problems or situations that will arise in ones life. I just thought about it because this theme seems to repeat itself on here regularly.
There was this young wood cutter who started with this logging company of much older guys. This young man was real strong and big. He could sling an axe like no ones business. After a week he begins to notice that the older men are cutting much more wood than he was even though they swung less often and less hard. So he asked one of them a question. "Hey old man, how is it that I swing twice as hard and twice as fast but you guys cut more wood than I do?" The older man said, "It's simple, every morning before I come to work I sharpen my axe."
1 ounce of preparation saves a pounds of work. The moral is, before you start to dive into a problem or fix something, you must understand everything about it. Even though we think we know what we are doing, we often miss a simple step that changes the whole way we could see a problem and provide us with foresight to develop a solution without compounding the problem further.
Read your manuals, don't assume, seek advise from multiple people no matter how convincing one argument may be. And lastly, use your head!
Good luck in your endeavors!
