I am sure you have all seen the video of a guy drawing 3 images of Spiderman.
The first takes 10 minutes, the second takes 1 minute and the last takes 12 seconds. I think I saw it for the fourth time in LinkedIn today.
This has been used to describe various things, but mainly ‘you get what you pay for’.
As with most analogies, I like to find a bidding angle. I am not going to go down the route of never having enough time or resources to do a bid, my take is to make sure that you have time to do ‘enough’ and that the time that you spend on it is proportional.
