Without identifying which thermostat the technique is good with, it's fairly well useless. It's like giving directions and suggesting where to turn at what tick of a stopwatch, but not telling how fast one should be driving. All the directions are there, but there is a huge important reference missing. Getting there is more a function of luck and happenstance, and the chances of it happening are slim. Following the surfing instructions on a 110C machine from a user that has a 100C machine won't get you decent results, and reversing that situation would probably make it worse.
Though if I like what street I turn down if I turn at tick = 2 mins, and I repeat that turn each time, point is I like the street I turn down (compared to other various turns/streets) and can achieve greater consistency on heading down the right road!
Also, if you try turning down streets at say 30 sec intervals on that stopwatch, and can compare results, all the better.
Sure it's 'work', and it isn't perfect, but it's only costing a person's time.
