I have seen some people doing many works at a time and attempting them with the utmost care and making them success within the stipulated time. They never get into mess with haste. They are successful in their lives and get into many bigger positions. That is their capability.
But all will not have the same capability. So always assess your capability and accordingly you go ahead. Then there will not be any problem.
Knowledge is power.
Guests are always important and presenting them with all possible better things is hosts obligation, and make guests comfortable. We shouldn't get swayed by emotions and end up doing bizarre things and face embarrassments before guests. Dipping salt instead of sugar happens only due to the urgency and not controlling our emotions. We should avoid doing anything in haste because haste makes waste.
