It’s been really busy at work this season. We’re busier than last year and there is no end in sight for the 50 hour work weeks. When I have more time, I must give you all some valuable advice about doing construction at your home. However, I won’t leave you empty handed!
When I was a young executive (21), a very successful salesman told me a small bit of advice that has stuck with me over the years. No one is able to argue it:
Good ~ Fast ~ Cheap. Pick two.
For you folks that don’t feel like thinking, I’ll spell it out for you.
- If you want it good and cheap, it won’t be fast.
- If you want it fast and good, it won’t be cheap.
- If you want it fast and cheap, it won’t be good.
I need to tell some of my clients this!!
