“Every moment spent planning saves three or four in execution”
Crawford H. Greenewalt
Reminds me of:
Have You Sharpened Your Axe?
Abraham Lincoln is regarded as one of the most important presidents in American history. He was well known for his energy and productivity. Abe Lincoln’s productivity secret was to use sharper tools to get the job done more efficiently.
He said: “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

I know that line and probably posted it a few years back. Thanks for the reminder
I take a hit for being a mega-planner, or so it seems to my more spontaneous friends and family. I can take the teasing. My significant error rate is minimal. Good quote!
This reminds me of my dad, “Measure twice….cut once.”
