When most people have a problem, they want to find and implement a solution so quickly that they sometimes don’t take the time to see whether that solution is the best fit for the problem. Hasty decisions often lead to more problems. It takes time to do the necessary research and make an educated decision to solve any problem, which is why it’s usually better to wait and make no choice immediately than make the wrong decision and pay for it later.
