Every step counts
When looking for a way to make things work after you have the major plan in place be prepared for unexpected problems. Also make sure everyone that knows that every step counts.
I’ll give you an example of one little missed step that lead to more calamities. We were in Pocomoke City, Maryland taking a little fishing trip. Went over to the pier on the river and starting fishing. An older station wagon pulled up with a boat in tow and backed it down the boat ramp. His wife (I’m guessing) went on the right side of the pier as he backed the boat in. The boat started to float and then kept floating downstream. She gave out with a scream. Remember at this stage just the boat trailer was in the water. He turned his head and took his foot off the brake. Now the car backed down the ramp into the water and the trailer jackknifed. The boat was gracefully floating down the river as the car exhaust burbled into the water. One of the taillights of the car was broken after encountering the pier. Luckily the car was not shut off. They got the car out of the boat ramp.
So what step was missed? Well someone knew they should be on the pier but somehow forgot to put a line on the boat before it got into the water. Every step counts and not telling everyone can get you in trouble.
