It's important to gather information that you can use as you make small changes. For once a small change is made, it's time to move on to another small change.
Your lifestyle may be completely different than the person who you are getting all of your information from (this can be positive and negative) so it's important that you take into account the best course of action for YOU and not trying to be like someone else.
I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to buy a house that was created with short-cuts, cheap parts and little attention to detail. For I may be buying a beautiful looking house on the outside and perhaps one that my friends will marvel over but will eventually crumble and fall once I get settled in (talk about a waste of money as well.)
I always say "progress not perfection" but it's almost as if individuals who want to make change have this pressure to do everything right (perfect) all at once, forgetting that every expert was once an amateur.
