Short cuts

Dead End

There’s always a quicker way.

A bigger engine might do it. Throw it in a high gear and stamp the accelerator. It’s exciting in a hairy, feeling out of control kind of way. Expensive, and the nuance is missed.

A few more assumptions, a bit less discussion, some details un-ironed, a corner shaved.

Here’s one I made earlier. It’s a pretty good fit. Not exactly built for purpose but maybe it’ll keep out the worst of the cold.

Short cuts are quicker. Problem is, when something’s cut short, it isn’t long enough.

Skippy Strategy: Next time you’re offered the fast track, try to work out where it ends.
