Applying 50% of a 100% rock solid plan doesn't give you 50% of the results.
For example, I would be a fool to expect to follow 50% of a recipe and expect to get 100% of the final product and taste. That cake would be bland or burned.
I would even be more of a fool to think I would get 20% at that.
Unless you know the area or topic inside and out like an expert (like many of our grandmothers who just eyeball everything and still make amazingly delicious food because of YEARS of mastery) then you need to model those who are successful and find "the recipe" of what works.
It is funny how we can fall in the trap of slacking on this. But would you allow it in other areas of your life? Would you want your doctor to only follow 50% of the plan for an operation or surgery? Do you want your mechanic to fix your engine 30% of the way? Of course not. Then why should you apply a solution half way and expect outstanding outcomes? Just because it might be hard to see the direct impact doesn't mean we should give up on it so easily. Let it bake. Let it simmer. Give it time. Stick with it.
We have to understand that small and subtle details matter when trying to engineer great results. Stick to the plan. Master it. THEN you can tweak it.
