When writing symbols does every little stroke count?

I've written symbols for a long time now and just recently begun to start again. I hadn't practiced for a long time and found that writing every little stroke is so painstakingly time consuming. When I look at Chinese writing I sometimes don't see most strokes clearly. So I ask myself , how can writing be a more faster process?

    From my experience, you can start from simple symbols like your Chinese name if you have one. When I first began writing at the age around 4, I believe my writing is like yours. But the more you practice, the faster you can write.

    split the whole symbol into parts:
    凋 = 冫 and 冂 and 土 and 口

    practice everyday
