  1. If you’ve ever used a “life hack”, “kitchen hack”, etc., then the answer is yes. If you do the same job, over a course of many years, you will learn “tricks of the trade” which is essentially cutting corners. Can you type? Do you use “hot” keys? That’s cutting corners while typing. All about perspective.

    • I guess so. But working smarter isn’t necessarily cutting corners. But I guess we are back to “it depends on the person”. I view cutting corners as cheating or omitting doing something or slacking off. Doing something the wrong way to save money would be cutting corners. Using a back hoe instead of a shovel would not be cutting corners.


      • If it’s omitting something important, then no it’s not ok. If it’s ignoring an arbitrary rule that doesn’t lead to inferior final product then sure.

  2. 🦋 If you mean when driving then… No! It’s against the law and quite dangerous.

    🦋 If you mean when creating something then…No! Your creation will never be the best.

    🦋 If you mean following a favourite cake recipe then…No! It will never be your favourite cake again.

    🦋 However, if the corners don’t need to be at right angles then…Why not!

  3. Success is not necessarily about connections, or cutting corners, or chamba – the three Cs of bad business. Call it trite, but believe me: success can be achieved through hard work, frugality, integrity, responsiveness to change, and most of all, boldness to dream.

    Thought provoking question indeed.

    • Questions like this one reveal how definitions are out the window. People interpret words in so many different ways. Maybe I get too hung up on actual definitions of words and phrases.
