So true. That’s why I’m glad I’m not trying to sell anything, lol.

I’m a professional. My clients drive me in a positive direction. They teach me to focus and I like that.
I’m glad I’m not a hobbyist. :)

I couldn’t agree more with this, Randy. I am a firm believer that finishing a piece should take as long, if not longer, than the build itself. Too often once we get to the finishing stage the tendency is that, since the “finish line” is in sight, to rush through the finish in order to get the project completed.

Randy, whilst the last 3 P’s are very important, I think the first P, Perspective, is critical for ultimate success. I have seen many pieces of good design and execution, spoiled by an unsuitable finish (obviously just in my opinion!) Perspective is the one I consider a lot!
Like the way you put it and enjoyed reading your blog.

Sometimes a successful finish is merely a matter of reading the label.
Too many wouldworkers are barely illiterate. ;>
