Some people would suggest you need to pick one and stick with it for each area of your life. My opinion is to experiment and see which method yields better results and then try them in different areas to find an optimal strategy. Even if you adopt a single strategy there may be times where you adopt the other one simply because it works better.
Mainly I want people to be aware of the options and the benefits and disadvantages to each strategy. Apply whichever strategy you want to any area of your life but beware the pitfalls and you'll be fine.
