Craftsmanship. Sometimes takes hours to get back to where you started.

I used to do a lot of nuisance beaver work for a county. I had one guy accuse me of being lazy based on my approach of catching the problem beavers causing flooded roads.
He preferred to go on a thorough search of the entire swamp to find the lodge and where trees were being cut down, and set heavy.
I did not need to know where the lodge is in most cases, and avoided disturbing it unless I had no other option. I don't like to stir up the entire family group right away, since most of these beavers are new to these roadside sites, tearing out the dam and messing with the lodge can cause these beavers to leave and not return for weeks.
My strategy was to catch them one or two per day without disturbing the whole family. I would generally be done in a weeks time.
Lazy? Simple? Effective? The third one is the only one I care about.

What is lost in simplicity and the easy way IMO is the "Human Nature Factor" to generally not want to accept the basic fundamentals of something. "We" are sometimes wanting to "re-invent the wheel", improve it, make it better, etc. There are two theories: If it ain't broke, don't fix it . . . and if it ain't broke, . . . you ain't tryin' hard enough!
