Shortcuts should save you time, energy and resources.
But many times those shortcuts turn out to be detours.
Detours that get you nowhere close to where you wanted to be in the first place.
And sometimes these detours can be so big and confusing that you'll get lost along the way and never really manage to get back on track moving towards your original destination...
Shortcuts help you save time, energy and resources.
Until they don't.
Until they start to eat up all of your time, energy and resources...
