"A stitch in time saves nine."
~ Ben Franklin ~
Shortcuts don't always work the way we hope they will,
maybe because of the energy that's involved in wanting to take them in the first place.
We think up a clever way to save time and save work-
make it easier.
maybe even more often than not-
the shortcut we come up with ends up taking longer,
and requiring more effort,
than the obvious,
To get the job done, we just have to do it.
