The depthless abyss of do-it-yourself.

And I just wanted to change a light globe …

Your counsellor may say something like: ‘Good intentions are not enough’.

What he means is that you need to learn the skills to effect your desires.

Home maintenance is a particularly tricky area. Your focus on one task may cause significant collateral damage.

For instance, in trying to tuck a computer cable behind a skirting board, you may rip the board from the wall (thus creating a second, bigger job).

When cramming a carton or other large purchase into your car, you may tear fabric and vinyl – perhaps reducing your car’s value by more than the purchase.

In these and other cases, a slower, more considered approach is necessary if you’re not to nullify your efforts.

It’s not easy to broaden your tunnel vision beyond the task at hand. But you’ll end up saving more time, money and tears if you do.
