There is never time to do it right the first time, but there always seems to be time to do it over.

It seems to go with good, fast, cheap: Pick two.

Managers often pick fast and cheap - and end up paying more later when it has to be made into good (when it will be both expensive and slow because it wasn't done good the first time).

If you still don't succeed try, try, again!
