He explained that he bought an uncompleted building and worked on it as though he was going to move in immediately. However, he changed his mind after researching and finding out that moving into an uncompleted house came with some hazards. He confessed that the ideal thing he should have done was to plan and prioritise appropriately.

He also mentioned that people should plan their building projects in phases. In addition, they should determine how much money they would need for each sage and budget accordingly.
