in this business long, the answer to that question is yes. What about the situation where you are working with a very skilled and knowledgeable team, but still are not as successful as you should be because even in light of financial and managerial support, for whatever reason, you could not get the right tool for the right job at the right time? The company had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on nail guns...but no one thought to buy hammers.
The corollary here is obvious...nail guns are automation tools, and hammers are for doing manual work. But aside from being obvious, it is also accurate. And that is why, if our carpenter has the choice between a hammer and a nail gun, he should choose both. Because you are truly most efficient when you have the right tool for the right job at the right time.
