You spend hours and hours and hours working on a project. It is a difficult project, requiring a lot of thought and concentration. Everyone is counting on you to finish this project in a timely manner- those counting on you cannot move forward with their own projects until you finish this one. After two full days of working on it, you finally finish. You feel pleased- relieved- and ready to celebrate! You print off the final product, and sit down to review it one last time before releasing it to those who have been patiently waiting… at which point you discover that you made a HUGE mistake at a very early point in the project, and you have to scrap the entire thing and start over.
Is anyone out there familiar with that feeling?
Because I am.
