On What You Do for Yourself vs. Others

MeotoIwaFutami

Measure twice and cut once, as the saying goes. Do that for yourself, and you’ll be fine.

Measure thrice and cut once, if it’s for someone else.

It’s about being responsible for yourself, and being more so for someone else.

It’s the kind of thing my grandmother used to say when I was growing up.
