Cold start or late start?

United States
December 4, 2009 11:02am CST
December 4, 2009 Regarding work, would you rather have a cold start on a project or a late start. I'd would prefer a cold start because I like to input ideas to make the process more personable. A late start means I have to research what's been done and fix it before I can move on. What's your choice?

I have never had a job where I have had projects which right now I am a Cart Pusher at Wal Mart but I am hoping to get moved up so maybe I will get a job that has to do projects,but if I had to choose between a cold start and a late start I would have to agree with you,I would rather have a cold start so I would have time to brainstorm and make it more me,instead of having to fix the problems that have already been made and then brainstorm,and sometimes the problems you have to fix take so long it effects you getting the project done on time,or I figure that would happen.

I think a lot of people would rather pioneer the idea then have to work with somebody else's problems.

Besides if you work with someone elses problems then you take the chance of getting the blame for something you did not even do,or you could get yelled at for not getting a sooner start on the project.

I would rather have a late start because I am very good at catching other people's mistakes, but am not comfortable having some else submit my work and then submit it without my review. So if I cold started and someone else late started on the same project, I would have to do twice as much work.

I think i will perfer a cold start too.. haha =D So that i can allow myself to think, or ideas to come out naturally as i'm doing certain projects.. IF there's a need for any changes, it's ok, for time is on my side.. haha =D If i end up with too much ideas, it's ok too, for i'm able to mix and mtach, to see which are the ones to go better together, in order to complete the 'masterpiece'?? lol =D

I would prefer a cold start. I like to figure things out for myself, and sometimes it is hard to figure out what other people have done and what was on their mind when they did it. I had a job once where I had to go through reports that were incorrect and I had to figure out where the errors occured and fix the problem. This was very tedious and not one bit fun.

I would prefer a cold start too if I had to do that kind of work.

i agree i would prefer a cold start as well, it lets you get more familiar with the task at hand, and lets you input more ideas, plus i tend to break a lil when it comes to late starts which means you have more to learn or study or observe in less the time, so you tend to make minor mistakes and stress more easliy, when you realy dont need to.

um..probably cold start. late start usually implies pending deadlines.

Definately a cold start..I don't like going around trying to figure out what someone else was thinking...it's much easier to do it from the ground up with total knowledge of what's going into the project.

hi gitfiddleplayer long time no see. anyway he he he I am retired but I also would rather have a cold start on a project rather than a late start.When I did work and was late, I felt out of sync all dad, like I was not using but a quarter of my brains on work that required just a bit of thought. Normally if anyone else said that about me, I would get mad but I can say it about myself. We all of us get into a certain routine at work and when its broken it really set us back,at least it did me. I felt like I was chasing my job all day when I was late. go figure.

I'm with you. I started making projects so I would have something to do and so I could be in control. I made some great changes for a few companies I worked with, I'm proud of what I've done.

I don't know, I work much better understand pressure but, I also don't like "fixing" other people's work. So, I guess I would have to take the cold start with a fast approaching due date LOL

I enjoy doing research and would probably like to do the project from the ground up so I would probably chose the later. Not sure on the cold start. I would love the research and would spent alot of time doing it. I am glad I don't work anylonger and that I never had to do such work when I did. Now I do it for myself and in my own way.

I'd rather be involved from the very start. Why should I have to come in later and fix things?

A cold start for sure! Coming in late and trying to figure out what everyone else has done and what I need to do to fix is a lot harder than having a cold start.
