Problems don’t magically get better, they compound

Ever miss a deadline and now the person on the other end you were counting on isn’t answering your phone calls or emails?

The problem isn’t that this person isn’t available to assist you. The problem is that you are out of time and they are now your only option.

It’s important to remember that everyone has a different timetable than you. Lack of preparation on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on theirs.
