There is a principle called the Triangle of Truth in business. Each side of the triangle corresponds with a different value. One side is called “Fast,” one side “Cheap,” and the last “Good.” The principle states that no matter which two sides you choose, you cannot have the third. If something is fast and cheap, it won’t be good.
