I think I’ve subscribed to that phrase, that’s why I bring it up. But at this point in my life I reconsider it.
For example, if you were doing a task that earns you $5, but to do it ‘well’ costs $10, then it’s clearly not worth doing well, is it?
What does it cost to do it ‘well’, however ‘well’ is defined (and indeed, who defined it?)? What do you actually get out of the task?
If doing it ‘well’ costs more than what you’d get out of the task, that’s not doing it ‘well’, that’s just screwing up.
Yeah, I somehow subscribed to complete rubbish.
I’m almost thinking it was made for a caste of labourers/lower downs, because while it wouldn’t profit them at all, it’d work for whoever they laboured for.
