The wise man would say: “My son, before you build your house you must first count the cost“. Ordinarily, I would agree with the wise man…100%.
When Canvassing My Friends began we were a one-income household and money was extremely tight. I was working two jobs and spare time was a luxury. Almost six months into the project and I am now able to extrapolate out the money and time that will be required to make it to the finish line. Had I known this information, before I began, I – most likely – would not have started.
I wonder if counting the cost can sometimes become a dream-killer? Maybe we have to be a little irrational in order to think big and to launch unusual or unproven ideas.
My internal jury is on recess while my sensible, prudent mind fights the dreamer within. Thankfully – with this particular project – the dreamer (with her head buried firmly in the sand) has been victorious!
