Slow is smooth, smooth is fast


We are so used to hitting the ground running that we miss crucial elements. I can’t remember how often I had to go back and fix reports, sales sheets, and other projects.

I heard a podcast Tim Ferriss had with Walter O’Brian once. In the podcast, Walter described the process of creating a program in his head. He would think of all the variables and create the program in his head. Then he would run the program in his imagination and fix any bugs he found. Only then would he start typing.

Think about it, taking the time to plan things out will take some time. But the time “wasted” would save you the hassle of coming back and redoing everything. By the way, if a person with a 197 IQ makes mistakes, so do we.

Remember slow is smooth, smooth is fast.
