I never thought about that actually. Maybe I'll try to slow down more in
my art. I've been drawing far too many fast pencil scribbles lately.

I'm sure that approach would work well in coding too. It's called "doing
it right the first time". I think you can err both ways though, both in
hesitancy, and in hastiness.
