Saturday Is Heinlein Quote Day #26

If you ever find yourself in the situation where this advice might be needed, it is good to have it. From the Notebooks of Lazarus Long:
Get a shot off fast. This upsets him long enough to let you make your second shot perfect.

Actually, General Patton had a similar thought:
"A good solution applied with vigor now is better than a perfect solution applied ten minutes later."
Most people will be more familiar with,
"A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week."

Timing is everything.
