Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.
Sometimes, saving a classic from the scrap yard takes priority.
Different routes for different people. Some would rather plan until they get it worked out on paper, some preferr to just start on it change it as often as necessary until they get what they want.
Neither way is wrong - unless it is forced on you.
I have a plan & am sticking to it - progress is being made as funds allow.
If someone wants me to move at a faster pace, they are welcome to increase their funding of my project.
