"Slowly but surely"
It is a quote that can be apply to anything, even in love! Yes, the slowly but surely method on love is the best!
But one thing that this quote can not be used is in programming. Why? Sure working programs are very good. But slow running programs are bad. In ACM, if you apply the slowly surely method, you will be given a TLE or Time Limit Exceeded. And TLE is very bad! It is the worst case that you can have in ACM.
So, as a piece of advice, "Slowly but surely" quote may work in almost all things in this world. But not in programming and in ACM. You, will surely lose if you follow this quote in that situation.
Just apply it in love, not in programming. :D
