If you give a man enough time, he can do anything.
I come back to those words every time I start a project solo. I think, like many other entrepreneurs, “I can do it all and control the quality and keep the budget low!”
Unfortunately this thought process tends to hurt you in the long run. Time is money and when you spend too much time on one facet, you:
1) get burned out fast and end up with tons of half-finished ideas
2) overall quality lacks and you never meet your deadlines
3) You spend, on average, over 8x the amount of overall time (Time is your most valuable non-renewable resource)
4) Won’t get the desired results at the speed you need
