When you take on a project, it’s important to remember that your ideas will grow and develop as you travel through it. Too many times I have visualized the end product of a project before it was time and ended up unsatisfied at the end. When a boss or family member etc. asks us to do something for them, we are filled with enthusiasm, we want a quick product. But would we settle for a quick product if it was for us personally? I wouldn’t. I spend a long time researching cars I want to buy (for example) or themes I want to use or websites I want to make before I set out to make them. The same should be true when we are working for others. Stay open minded and let the project take on a life of its own. I have always believe that life is a journey not a destination and if you know the destination before you start the process, you’ll be disappointed at the end.
This is especially important to remember now with the employment rate being as low as it is. We should emphasize what we can do today and out tomorrow will be better.
