Measure twice, cut once

An excellent piece of carpenters’ wisdom that can be applied to so many things. Proceed with caution when there is no going back.

The Azerbaijani version of this saying takes it to a whole other level:

“Take 100 measurements before you make one cut.”

I guess materials are even more valuable in Azerbaijan.
