There are two ways to do something:

  1. Dive deep, take your time and do the best possible job.
  2. Get it done as quickly as possible without worrying too much about depth or quality.

Always go with depth. Whether you’re giving somebody a book recommendation, writing a blog post, or doing work for a client, never half-ass anything. If you’re going to half-ass something, don’t do it at all. You should either be 100% in or 100% out. There is no middle ground.
