Sometimes we just want a re-do on our work.
But should we do a do-over?
- Do-over: When it’s unreconcilably, unpivotably wrong. When it needs to be done in one take, and your take wasn’t right. When perfection is absolutely required.
- Do-not-do-over: Every other circumstance.
Most things are fixable. Most things don’t need to be done in one take. Most things can’t be perfect, nor is anyone expecting perfection. Except perhaps you.
Could you be over-doing do-overs?
