The act of creation is manual.
One can use many tools while putting the asset together manually. That’s absolutely fine.
Let the asset loose.
From this point on, it’s on auto.
It’ll remain on auto, hopefully, till its logical conclusion is reached.
If the asset misbehaves in between, it will attract your attention.
If your attention is attracted beyond your critical mass, you will stop what you’re doing and attend to the asset.
You will either tweak and repair and let it loose once more.
If the asset is beyond repair, you will terminate it, i.e. sell it off, even at a loss. After all, it is misbehaving. You don’t wish to hold something that bothers you.
Peace of mind is the most valuable asset in your portfolio.
