In StarCraft, the SCV is the all-purpose worker unit who gathers resources and constructs buildings. While it can defend itself, it is the weakest unit in the game. While it seems wise to produce new workers non-stop, you might want to temporarily sacrifice long-term growth with short-term gains: finding the right window of opportunity to build certain units, instead of investing into economic growth, might lead to you winning the game or at least getting ahead. Both in the game as in business, it does not matter how good your army or your product is, but how it is relative to your competition. Do not try to build a perfect army or perfect product. Check the market, check what consumers want: they want a better product than what the competitors are offering.
