Default Wrong way of doing things ? PLS tell me !

Hi there,

I've been scanning through the diffrent treads and this site is really a mine of advise....However, the different concerns on visa's have been scanning are scaring me because it seems that the very vast majority of people is applying for a permanent visa (most through the independent skilled category). I'm planning to settle in Sydney in January, but I am first thinking about going with my holiday visa and try to get a job offer from a company and then go to the sponsorised visa through an agency (getting the permanent visa will take too long).
I am completely out of my mind; I mean, is this completely crazy to do it this way ?
Thanks for your honest replies...

Whatever you do, make sure that you time it correctly. The last visa
you get issued is the visa you have, so it is possible to wipe out
your permanent residence with a tourist visa if you make a mistake.
Ask the experts on this one, but why not just apply for permanent
residence anyway and wait a bit (year) - if you need to move quickly
go for the work visa. Either way, don't worry about it - looks like
you are on your way by some route.
