Implementing good habits early on may be seen as (perhaps unnecessarily) adding to the entire process when first starting out with Salesforce. It is true that habit-training may indeed add hours to your work within Salesforce, but it’s totally worth it! When implemented properly, good habits will help you scale and build extremely quickly, allowing you to focus on the good problems, not the bad ones.
Before you can begin building or improving Salesforce, or a related system, it’s critical that you define your requirements. We often see admins jump directly into building before spending time understanding the “why” behind a project. Unfortunately, the project almost always suffers for it.
