I wonder if there's a difference between (slow recognition + fast correction) vs. (fast recognition + slow correction)? Are recognition and correction equally valuable or is one more important than the other?

Does the nature of the goal affect the importance of course correction? For example, I imagine a more specific, harder to attain goal would require more course correction than a less specific, easier to attain goal? e.g. "Bob wants 10,000 followers on Twitter by the end of the month" would probably require more course corrections than, "Bob wants between 10 and 10,000 followers in the next 6 months".

In the latter case, would it be more important to move faster, with somewhat poor (but still some) course correction?
