Skipping Steps

Have you ever been in a rush to get somewhere and started skipping the steps to get up them faster?
I've done it. Steps are annoying, the faster up them, the fast I'm done with them.

But there are some things were you can't skip steps. Not successfully. Like the steps towards getting published. 

Write the manuscript.
Edit it.
Edit it some more.
And some more.
Find some agents.
Write some queries.

Now it gets a little fork in the road. Either you get an agent and get published or you go back and edit some more or you give up on that story. For now.

This is what I've done:

Write the manuscript
Start editing it
Find some agents
Write some query letters
Write the next manuscript
Go back to editing.

Wait--what? How the heck did I do that? Rather, why?

Heh, I know why. I get bored and jump around. I'm not going to send it out though! That would be very, very stupid. 

Anyone else ever skip steps?
