When I was a contractor I would spend 100 hours or more bidding a project, This was unpaid time but, by familiarizing myself with what I could know beforehand, I could more easily sidestep unforseen problems because the things I had pre-planned were already under control.
This planning kept me ontime and on budget. Jobs that other contractors would drag out for 2 years? I would finish in 9 months.
We want you to be ready before you quit.
Failure is not fun. It drops your confidence and the more you fail the more elusive success becomes,
This is your life. Work your quit before you quit!
