Work Ethic: Patience

What happens when we do something for the first time? We make mistakes. We make a cut too soon or perhaps we didn’t read the instructions well and have extra pieces at the end of a project. What is the right thing to do when this happens? Start over. Wait! What?! That’s wasteful isn’t it? Not if you planned for it and count it as learning to deliver the ideal end product. A great work ethic doesn’t settle for the first draft. If I have a great work ethic, I plan to develop an idea. I allow time and resources to get it right. I plan for mistakes so that I don’t have to settle on less than what I promised because I ran out of money and time.
