The fundamental rule of life?

Found this (via) fundamental rule of the internet; which maybe also applies to life itself (who knows?):

Trying stuff is cheaper than deciding whether to try it. (Compare the cost of paying and feeding someone to do a few weeks of [Perl or PHP] hacking to the full cost of the meetings that went into a big company decision.)

Don't overplan something. Just do it half-assed to start with, then throw more people at it to fix it if it works.

I'm just asking ... and what qualifies trying to doing it properly? What is the difference? Who is the judge? Isn't we always just trying? As best as we can...
