In my previous article please don’t organize for speed, I shared this paradoxical quote from Cisco’s Scott Cherf:
To go faster, slow down. Everybody who knows about orbital mechanics understands that.
Say what? Slow down to go faster?
What do you think Cherf is talking about? Not rushing? That’s probably most people’s first thought. I bet most of us have had the experience of rushing to get a task done and screwing something up in a way that makes us have to go back and do the work over.
