Measure Twice, Cut Once
TOOLS of THE TRADE: Rulers
Measure Twice, Cut Once - It's a maxim that can be applied to so many things: carpentry of course, but also sewing, baking, model-making, hiking, or your next move. . . anything that requires attention. Sure it helps with measurements, but it also translates to double checking your supplies, your gear, your equipment. Check it off your list, and check it again. Read through the directions once, and once more. You might have missed something.
Because when we're rushed, eager to get going, or over confident, we're not focused. And it's times like that when we need to be sure . . . when we most need to measure twice, cut once.
