Take Time to Go Fast

Imagine that you have to drive a long distance as fast as possible. Do you just jump in your car and put your foot down?

  • You won’t get there fast if you run out of fuel. You need to take time to fill up.
  • You won’t get there fast if you have an accident. You need to take time to drive safely.
  • You won’t ge there fast if you have to come back because you’ve forgotten something. You need to take time to pack properly.
  • You won’t get there fast if you pick a poor route. You need to take time to look at the map / program the SatNav.

We all know that, when driving, we need to take time to go fast.
Why don’t we understand the same thing about writing software?
