First, lets begin with the definition.
Half-Assing is when you set out to do something, but in completing the task, you compromise in such a way that it defeats the fucking purpose of the task in the first place.
You buy a hybrid car that uses only two thirds the fuel consumption of a normal car. You then proceed to drive twice as much as you used to.
You buy a computer to play games. Then you cut back on your graphics card because your budget doesn’t stretch that far.
You hire a person to improve your company. Then, you do not follow any of the recommendations nor do you give him any actual power.
You ask someone to give some recommendations for some movies to be featured on the front of a website. But the list is limited and all the good ones are not there.
My point is this: if you are going to do something, please be prepared to pay the price. If you are going to only dip your toes and move on to another pool because it’s not the right temperature, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A BAD TIME.
