To solve a small problem it is unnecessary to write code that runs as fast as possible, but here “small” must be understood reflexively to mean only that a fast running code is not required. Regardless, to solve problems of practical interest it will certainly be necessary that our code runs fast for large cases, and as habits govern so much of our behavior we will do best by writing code for small cases with potential large cases already in mind.
