can tell all young guns from 40 years expereince that every time U get
that "Lazy feeling" it's a Monty that if U do not go the extra yard you
will go down!
It is a trap that the inexperienced make as they
improve their techniques and ability to measure. Becoming smugly over
confident because "the last check was a waste of time." So almost with
a disdaining air of arrogance begin to cut corners by excluding
rigorous checks because "I am always right".
If there is one
piece of advice that I can pass on to field workers is that you can
never afford to cut corners when surveying in the field as it always
comes back later to bite you hard.
Having said that we all learn the hard way.
"I was always told to check and recheck and got lazy."
