Several years ago, my father-in-law shared some wisdom with me while working on a project around our house..."Measure twice, cut once."
I have seen this wisdom play out well when utilized, and issues arise when not followed. Whether the project is around your house or working with a big client at work, if you can follow this simple piece of advice it can lead to saving time, energy, and money. It really is worth it to do things right the first time. So on your next project, "Measure twice, cut once."
