Years ago, I used to listen to an NPR program from Boston known as “Car Talk”. Running from 1977 to October 2012, two brothers, Tom and Ray Magliozzi, were the co-hosts of NPR's weekly radio show Car Talk, where they were known as "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers".
In it, they would ponder questions from listeners and answer their questions. Sometimes they would discuss between husband and wife about how to handle a car problem. Inevitably, there would be someone trying to save money and time which normally ended in abject failure or damage to the engine and cost an inordinate amount to repair or dump it, hence their saying, “it’s the stingy man who pays the most”.
What's My Point?
When it comes to spending money on a project the facets of “good, fast, and cheap: pick 2” come up. This is the Project Management Triangle. That means there’s always a trade off:
Cheap + fast = lower quality work
Fast + good = expensive
Good + cheap = not happening anytime soon
