2 Types of Shortcuts
There are two types of shortcuts.
One leads to success and growth. The other leads to contraction.
Branding in 60 Seconds
The shortcut to avoid is to “cut corners” and compromise quality and lower standards, all under the umbrella of “moving product.”

This type of shortcut is LAZY.
The other shortcut, which is the only legitimate one, is about efficiency. Doing things smarter. Doing things in a more streamlined manner with NO compromise in quality, and ideally an increase in quality.
This type of shortcut is brilliant. Genius in fact.
