    It's been long since I made a post here, but I took a vacation from work and didn't touch a computer for a while.. :)

    Like a month ago, I went to some shop in my village to buy a backpack for my Euro trip. If you care, I went to Prague, Munich, Amsterdam


    Anyway, something in that seller?s attitude caught my attention?


    He was so quick, so overhasty with his moves, so that he had to repeat almost every move that he did, at least twice.


    Think about it, we try to save time by acting or thinking faster, therefore we have to re-do a lot of moves, ending up wasting much more time.


    It?s the same with reading, if you try to read faster, you might end up re-reading many sentences till you fully-understand the idea.


    But,


    Also acting very slowly, thinking very slowly, or reading very slowly is not effective at all.


    Life is all about balance, and also here, we should keep a balance.


    So slow down a bit, you are not being more effective by rushing.

    Yes you're right. It's better to take your time and understand what you're doing rather than speeding up and having to go over what you already did to understand it. Thanks for the post and I hope you enjoyed your trip :)

    Measure twice, cut once. I try to be as deliberate and thorough as possible in my daily activities. I also try to demonstrate refinement in everything I do. Admittedly, I'm not always successful... but I try to be.

    Organization is such a important factor when it comes to success.

    Repetition<Comprehension

    I agree that there has to be balance. Just because you are well organized does not mean your actions should be slow. Working fast will not make up for unorganized work. Like you said, you'll end up repeating steps you will possibly overlook.

    In the grand scheme of things, its better to do it right the first time then having to go back and continue to redo what you did in the first place, only b/c you rushed through it in the first place...

    this is a good lesson to learn, patience...

    Why not be fast and efficient at the same time? I personally would want people to try to do things fast so that they could learn how to stay efficient while maintaining that speed or even become faster in the future.

    Slower is quicker indeed. The OP's post actually captured me entirely during my younger days. I would usually take on too much and think that by rushing through everything, I would somehow end up with more info and knowledge. Its a universal rule that works with many of life's tasks.

    With software & systems development, this can most definitely be the case...

    When I'm designing a new system, I'll force myself to design it in my head a couple of times differently first, and then give it a few days to see what the old cerebral cortex throws at me; often in my sleep!

    Letting ideas, strategy and design 'sit' for a while (before implementation) can save a crap-load of re-working down the line because in your haste, you didn't envisage some issue or problem that now needs to be worked around.

    Remember the Tortoise and the Hare story that we read in childhood. Remember what the moral of the story was. It was "slow and steady wins the race". Sometimes we need to slow down in life and look at things with a different perspective. Doing that helps us realize what we have been doing wrong and how we can do it right from now on.
