Short cuts can be a dangerous thing. Often, we think we can save time (and money) by cutting corners and accelerate the process of doing things. Many times we try and cheat the clock with the thought that we will, in fact, get it done sooner and maybe make a good impression on the direct report, the client, the teacher or even ourselves. But when all is said and done, the bottom line is the end result. Clearly, it’s better to do it right and get ‘it ‘done properly. Judgment will always be predicated on the RESULTS. You will be measured by the quality of what you accomplished – not how long it took to do it. If you take too long, that might be an issue – but within a reasonable period of time, you complete things and try and do it right – not easy.
