Quick Solution: What Are We Losing?

Decision making

Most prefer taking Panadol over resting and eating well.

Often, it is too tempting to fire the employee we dislike rather than adapt according to their style.

Similarly, we tend to spend money on marketing the average product rather than refining the product.

Quick solutions will always be available to us. They are likely to be our default preference. However, they may not be suitable for us in the long run. We pay the price for quick solutions. We have to deal with tradeoffs for quick solutions too.

In the heat of the battle, stepping out and knowing the holistic price of the quick solution is often enlightening.
