Simple project. Even for someone who doesn’t do a lot of things around the house often. All that I needed was my power drill that could reverse in direction and I was set. Easy I thought. Changing the kitchen cabinet hardware would be quick.
The new hinges and handles were ordered and arrived.
But then the surprise came. The task was easy. But there were a lot of handles and hinges to change. It took me about 4.5 hours to do them all. I had to get on the floor to get to some of the hinges. I needed a ladder to get to the cabinets above the refrigerator.
4.5 hours. Not 5 minutes. It reminded me that in life, everything takes time. Even simple things when they are done to completion.
Most things will take more time than you think. Especially when they have value.
