The first decision in a project, which project to do, is the most important decision. That decision may determine how a lot of future time is spent. When making very important decisions it is important to consult those with expertise in the area rather than to just rely on one's own knowledge. That doesn't mean one should do what the experts say. It has been my experience more than once that the experts told me the wrong thing. Consulting the experts also doesn't mean consulting them for every problem. It is best to prepare by trying to solve the problem oneself first before going for help. That way one is likely to take up their valuable time only when absolutely necessary.
