Better solution first or just the solution first?

I have encountered two kinds of Programmers/Coders. The first one seeks to find the best way to solve a problem while the second one seeks to find a solution first. My question is: What is better, to spend the whole time finding a better solution and getting none or getting a solution first then making it better?

I always find myself in the second group where I try to seek the solution first. After I have the solution, I first have the satisfaction of having the solution even though not the best and then enough time to contemplate and make it better. I find this to be helpful especially if the client is breathing on your neck and wants to get the solution out quickly. But this scenario is ugly in the sense that I usually don’t like to deliver my solution before I make it better. I always like to have ample time after I solve a problem to go over the solution and make it better.

On the other hand, I have seen people in the first group who spend so much time to just come with a better solution. With the first group I have encountered two end results:

  1. They never get it done in the allotted time.
  2. They come up with one of the best solution.

What is your say?
