To cut corners is to find and use a faster, cheaper, or easier way of doing something. In the short run you save time, money, and maybe some aggravation.
But in the long run you sacrifice the quality of your work, product, or service. Cutting corners cuts the value of what you are doing.
If cheap is what you want to promote, and what your boss or your clients want, then go ahead and go for it.
If you want to add value to your reputation, then go all out and do your absolute best! Never cut corners.
