Do it Completely, Like a Bonfire

"When you do something, you should do it with your whole body and mind; you should be concentrated on what you do. You should do it completely, like a good bonfire. You should not be a smoky fire. You should burn yourself completely."
                      - Zen dude Shunryu Suzuki

Upside: good results that you can be proud of (insofar as you take credit, which you won't if you've followed the instructions).

Downside: observers will find you "off", excessively intense and eccentric. The 21st Century First World does not tolerate, much less appreciate, this sort of thing.
