Speed is Irrelevant

Creating things is difficult. Yes, it may seem effortless for some but, the reality usually grueling, difficult and strewn with stress and anxiety. It’s all part of the game. Some can do it quickly, some can do it very well. Some can do both. 

An aggressive schedule is usually standard. You can’t take your time, because there’s competition. Global competition. So how fast you go matters. And it matters a lot. 

The thing is though, speed can’t be the only thing that matters. Having the ability to execute something quickly isn’t enough. How fast you do something only matters after how well you do something. The customer, your client or anyone who looks at the result won’t know the time it took to get there. They won’t know, and they won’t really care. They will care about how well you’ve made something. While speed is nice, it’s not the only thing that matters. Doing something well matters more.

PS. This is my first late post of the year. Completely spaced on this one as I was working on projects over the weekend. No excuses.
