Jerry was anxious to get the job finished. He had spent three days on a project that was originally supposed to only take two. Now he ran the risk of running late for the next client and creating scheduling conflicts that would last well into the next week. Despite trying to stretch the last gallon of paint to finish the last wall, he had come up short and was going to need another gallon of paint. Jerry raced to the industrial paint supply store across town and placed his order. Already stressed over the predicament and anxious to get back to the job site and finish, Jerry asked the man behind the counter to please hurry with the paint.
“I’m sorry, Jerry,” he replied, “I’m doing the best I can but I can’t rush this process. I have to do it right.”
