When I saw this quote, I had a flashback to my childhood and heard my dad saying this to me. He didn’t use this direct quote, but he did teach me that if you are not going to put in the effort to do it the right way, don’t do it. Sometimes we get to the end of the day or are just burned out and this is when we tend to rush through a task or take on the “good enough for government work” mantra. Instead, walk away from the task and take a break. Come back to it with a fresh perspective and you will be more likely to give it the appropriate attention it deserves.
