Moms know how to spot the best sewing machine for the money
The great thing about being a mom is the fact that you are forced to be efficient and effective at the same time. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a single mom or if you have a husband. You’re going to have to think in a very efficient and effective way and you do not have all day to do it.
This might seem impossible if you look at this in a vacuum. If you look at this as some sort of theory, then it’s easy for you to become skeptical. It’s very easy for you to doubt that this even exists. Believe me; I understand where you’re coming from because this was my mindset when I first began. I thought to myself, “How can I do that? That seems impossible?”
But when you have a baby and you have a fixed budget, you learn from doing. You start looking at your situation with a fresh set of eyes. The more opportunities you are presented, and most importantly, the more opportunities you make for yourself, the better your decisions become.
Sooner or later, because of your set of circumstances, you train yourself to become a better selector of different product options. You start mapping out different ways things can and will play out.
Usually, when you make a decision, you’re not stuck with a very binary choice. By binary, I’m talking about one road leads to complete and total disaster and another road leads to heaven. It is usually that extreme.
Oftentimes, the two roads look very similar to each other. But if you go down that road long enough, they actually cost you quite a bit. Either they cost you a tremendous amount of money or they cost you a tremendous amount of time. Whatever the case may be, the losses scale over time. The same goes with gains or profits.
Experienced moms know how this works. They’ve been around the block. They know the patterns. They’re able to connect the dots. And this is why they’re able to pick the very best product depending on how much money they have.
For example, if you’re on the market for the best sewing machine for the money, you would know how this works. You would know how to slice and dice the probable outcome and output of the sewing machine and the other considerations in your set of circumstances.
When you’re able to put all these things together, you are more likely to make a better choice. And the great thing is that the more you make this decision, the better you get. So don’t beat yourself up baldy if you make a bad choice.
Look at it for what it is. It is a lesson. There’s some pain there. There’s a sense of foolishness there. But the reason those exists is to cement the lesson that that was not the right choice given the circumstances. Take the lesson, move on and step up.
