Sewing and Planning

Today I fired up the sewing machine for the first time. It was a lot of fun to get it working and it was very empowering to see those first stitches. It is remarkable how fast you can sew. I am excited for all the new projects I can make. Some observations:

The success of the project is determined by the amount of planning: From the threads you will use, the fabric you will use and the patterns, to the stitches you will use, etc. – the actual sewing part is easy – its all the prework that really determines the success of the project.

Planning is a skill that needs to be learnt: No everyone is born to be a skillful planner but being a good planner, like being a good leader is not something you are just born with – you can learn to be a decent planner. Just like anything else, you have to start somewhere
