Do you believe you can achieve quality by producing more (quantity)?

Achieving Quality by Higher Quantity
What Herbert Lui says:

'...A young lady named Jennifer Dewalt wanted to learn how to build a website. Did she spend years looking for the perfect one to model?

'Nope. She simply paid for a co-working space and took a stab at building 180 websites in 180 days. I’m under the impression that she spends the majority of her day on this initiative, and so doesn’t have another job to answer to. (Keep in mind that this option still is much more frugal than paying thousands in tuition for “hacker school” AND leaving your job to do it.)...'

    Nov 15 2013: In some circumstances quality can be achieved through a higher quantity, like if you were selling products with an interest over time you would gain enough interest to start selling things of higher quality,. Another circumstance where quantity can improve the quality is when you spend a high quantity of time perfecting something that you are inventing. investing time in your creation makes it better. So to answer your question "Yes, in some circumstances." Very good question, but also very broad considering you could be talking about anything.

      I think the summary of your answer is the most concise and precise. Thanks Hannah.
