Earlier this week, I was putting together some bookcases. You know those kind that come in a thin box with a picture on front of how great it will look when it's finished.
In big letters on front it said, "Quick and Easy Assembly." This was a lie. An outright lie. But after I got over being lied to, I settled down to build bookcases. Of course with 3 children in house, I had some help. And late into project, when I asked, "What's next step?", they told me, and of course - they skipped a step.
They didn't mean to (they never do, do they?). They were just in such a hurry that they turned two pages instead of one. Well, we fixed problem, and bookcases look great by way, but it ended up taking even longer than it was going to (there was nothing "quick and easy" about it!).
Well, of course this got me to thinking. By trying to skip steps and hurry, we ended up taking even longer. And since I relate everything to Internet (do you do that, too?), it just reinforced for me my deeply held belief that you CANNOT GET RICH OVERNIGHT!
