Preparation is More

than Half the Battle

 by Rob Carver

Reading Rob's article this month, I realize preparation lasts longer than I expected.  In fact, it's probably a lot more than half the battle.  For me and especially for a new project, preparation starts with the first inkling of wanting to make a piece. I design cognitively for a while before putting anything down on paper or screen.  I guess my thought about preparation was the first step immediately followed by the last step. Yep, two serial steps and you're done.  Seems simple and efficient.  Right?  The concept here is that if you prepare well, the intended outcome is successful - don't skimp on preparation.  But now I'm thinking, preparation continues until you say "Done".

What is your take on Preparation is More than Half the Battle?
