I personally have never believed that one "can't beat the compiler." But I will say that in most cases the amount of time to beat the compiler will never be repaid.

When writing your own code, this is a non-issue. Some people take pride in having the fastest time possible. But when doing this for pay, it should always be considered. And we should consider all of the costs. This would include the amount of time one spends finding the fastest way. (And will expense of paying someone to wait that time would be more then the expense of paying the developer.) But also needs to include the extra time it takes the next guy to know what you did, why and decide if it is right or wrong.
