al tiro

It will help to drop the "principle" and go straight to the meaning of the full phrase.

They follow a do-it principle --> Hacen las cosas ¡al tiro!

Classic LatAm expression conveying the same "do it" principle.

Alsdo "altiro" in some places.

el principio de "hacer las cosas"

Simple, pero gráfico.

Las empresas de excelencia son, por encima de todo, brillantes en lo básico. Creen en que lo que hay que hacer se haga y se siga adelante. Adhieren al principio de "hacer las cosas".
