Give Yourself Time

Starting a troubleshooting session on a difficult problem one half-hour before you have to go away for the weekend is not a great idea. Since you haven't allowed yourself nearly enough time to do a proper job of diagnosing the situation, you are going to feel rushed. It's likely that you will misdiagnose the problem, have to stop half-way before you are finished, and that you will generally feel uncomfortable during the entire process (even more than usual).

Give yourself a fighting chance to resolve the problem properly by allowing yourself enough time to do the job right.
