Generally, there are a lot of turns and distractions when you try to apply short cuts. It eventually makes the journey longer. On the other hand, when you do things the right way, it takes a little longer and it seems you won't make it. However, as your progress, you will find things moving faster than you expected. The fact is, the long route is the shortest one.
