Sharper is better than faster

Sometimes you need to work sharper, not faster, especially someone who does tax returns.
There were two CPAs having a contest, who could chop the most trees down by April 15th. One worked furiously, every day, all day without stopping. The other would stop for a few minutes every half hour. When April 15th came, the person who would stop had cut down more trees. The other person said "I don't understand, I kept working while he did not!" The winner said " The reason I kept stopping was to sharpen my saw blades".
