... But please bear with me, I need some advice.
When you're attempting to reach a goal, you set up steps to accomplish along the way. Each step in the process brings you closer to that goal.
So, let's say you have a seven-step process and you're currently at, say, step three. Suddenly, an opportunity to skip to step five falls in your lap. But, not accomplishing steps three and four may come back to haunt you later. But, you can still accomplish steps three and four while at step five, it will just delay things a bit in the short term.
Would you skip ahead?
