For others it could be a combination of both. This change could be as simple as
rearranging the furniture or painting the walls, but more often than not even these
two relatively uncomplicated tasks turn into something much larger in scope than
originally intended. The reason for this expansion of “the project” is usually due
to our commonly held belief that “as long as we are doing it-we might as well also
"add a third story to our house”. Not to mention the results of the surveys we
just conducted with our spouse, friends, family, the postman and anyone else
who is willing to contribute their opinion. Everyone is going to have an opinion,
which unfortunately only adds to the confusion and uncertainty that lies ahead?
