Going deep.

I had a 90 minute conversation with a friend today. We're working on a project and I notice I'm going much deeper and slower than I used to.

I'm realizing the power of getting it done correctly the first time. 

Tomorrow, my plan is to go much slower than I normally think I should. It feels weird to spend a whole day or two on a thing - but if you get it done, it can be done. Imagine getting 20 things accomplished in a month. Even 10 would be useful.

So, my new motto is this: If it's worth doing, it's worth doing methodically. It's worth documenting. It's worth a kung-fu approach.

Bruce Lee wasn't afraid of the man who registered 10,000 domains. He was afraid of the guy who registered only one.

Wait, it wasn't domains. It was practicing kicks. I was just trying to modernize it a bit.

To go deep, I'll end up re-writing much code. It'll be worth it. I'll come at it with completely new eyes. I'll have deeper insights and more thoughtful considerations.

In the meantime, I'm going to see what a good night's sleep will do for me. Tomorrow. Slow and steady. It's not even a race to win. Just slow — steady.

    @brianball I like the plan especially the good night's sleep.
