I saw this wonderful internet post that draws an important distinction, when applied to building software.
Most teams I have worked with are on the left hand side. Yet, excellence sits squarely on the right hand side.
Fast is different in the short-term and the long-term. In the short-term, the left side is faster, and therefore, it is tempting. In the long-term, ‘doing it right’ always outperforms ‘quick and dirty’.
