Cutting corners

We all have tasks and projects that we need to do, things that we need to see through to the end.

But in order for this to happen, we must put in the work to make it so.

Without this work, we will not get any closer to finishing these things.

Sometimes, we get to the point of thinking that it is not worth it. We lose sight of the finishing line.

At other times, we think that we can cut corners, make things move along quicker.

But by cutting corners, we miss out on valuable learning and problem solving.

We may get there quicker by cutting things out, but the result may be less than perfect, may not be quite what we had hoped for.

The longer route may seem much less tempting, but will we be happier in the end.

Instead of rushing, we should take the time to do a good job, rather than just an adequate one.

Our sense of achievement will be so much better, knowing that we have done the best that we can, learned as much as we can from the journey.

So when you are tempted to cut corners to make things quicker and easier, imagine how you will feel.

Will you be happy with just good enough? Or will you take your time to do the best job that you can.
