James Somers on working quickly.

The obvious benefit to working quickly is that you’ll finish more stuff per unit time. But there’s more to it than that. If you work quickly, the cost of doing something new will seem lower in your mind. So you’ll be inclined to do more.

He also posits that it’s also true that if you respond to emails quickly people will email you quickly. So slow down your emailing, but get your blog posts and other creative endeavours out quickly so that the “cost” of producing is light.
