[Question] Burst work or steady work?

Some people work at a steady pace, below their Epic Maximum Work Capacity. Others try to keep up their Maximum Capacity, sometimes(?) burning out, but getting more done in the short bursts.

Over a time of, say, 6-18 months, which practice will lead to more work in the long run? Are there data or basic facts that lead us to one or the other? Are they both situationally useful, if so in which situations? And what about people’s individual neurochemistry? (dopamine, “spoons”, discipline, motivation, etc.)

Which is more true, more often? “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast”, or “work in focused bursts”? Blue Origin or SpaceX?
