You Want to Save Time? Try Studying
“Fake it ’till you make it.”
We’re always looking for shortcuts. I remember some of the kids in college constantly trying to get copies of the exams or arranging to cheat with others during the tests. They worked harder than those of us who simply studied.
I ran what was then called the “hundred yard dash” on the track team (and also the “220”). It was a straightaway, a gun sounded, and you ran like hell for ten seconds or so. Then it was done. There was no strategy, no shortcuts, no tricks. The fastest guy with the best form won. It was based on talent. You could train and get advice and learn from the experience.
But no one let you cheat. If you started too early, before the gun, it was a “false start” and if you received two, you were tossed out.
We need to throw more people out who are determined to cheat, because they cast doubt on everyone. Show me the meat.
