I have a modified and simplified version of my contractor’s blue tape advice:
- In a new context, you’re going to notice everything that feels off.
- Make a list of everything that feels off, no matter how big or small.
- Wait a bit, like a month, but address everything. …
It’s a surprise when a month passes, and you review your blue tape list and discover how items that seemed urgent at the time now seem entirely irrelevant.
