0. Does it work?
My take on "premature optimization is the root of all evil" is simple: first, make sure everything works correctly (e.g. passes all tests).
Then, and only then, should you look at the remainder of that list.
Also, between 3 and 4, a good question is "will any fix make it fast enough to be worth my time to implement?"
