Consider at what speed you should try to do things in order to improve performance.
We can often learn something quickly, but without attaining a master level (like getting good at estimating answers to math problems. While you might get within close proximity, you'll seldom get to the exact answer.)
Learning to do something with precision will require a different technique and can take much longer to master.
There are two problems you can encounter when you're trying to learn something.
The balance between going faster and doing it right depends on what you're trying to achieve.
