Fine if you want to powergame, but otherwise I'd ignore it. The kind of equipment you can make through high level smithing makes you ridiculously powerful. Like literally untouchable to everything in the game. It turns the whole thing into a giant bore.
I like that my high level assassin/thief can still get his ass handed to him if a Bear jumps him.
To each his own, of course.
As for not fucking up your character, eh, just put all your early skills in boosting wpn damage and armor. Quite frankly, with sneak and one-handed, I'm not sure why you'd need destruction added to it. You'll already murder everything with a dagger. It helps not to spread things out. Focus on ONE way of dealing damage. Ie, bows, or swords, or magic. Don't try to keep two up at the same time, you just don't get enough perks. (which I also like.)
