Not better or worse per se, but there are consequences. It's just like ordering in a restaurant. You can change your order before it arrives, but it will delay the whole meal each time you do it. Doing that now and then isn't a serious issue. But if you keep changing your mind repeatedly before your order arrives, you won't get fed at all, and that's worse than getting a mediocre meal.
Also, if you're so indecisive that your order is constantly changing, it suggests you lack experience. So in that case it would be better to let the food arrive, eat it whether you like it or not, and learn from the experience so you can place better orders next time. Your palate will become more refined as you sample more dishes.
