I’m not slow or fast when I’m working on a project, but somewhere in between, and I believe a steady pace with attention to detail is the way to achieve success. And if we get tired, or encounter a situation which requires thought and possibly a change in plan or direction, we should take a break, step back, and look things over.
In most industries, time is money, but putting too much emphasis on speed can cause costly mistakes, and finishing on time means little if the budget isn’t kept.
Why are we in such a hurry? Slow down, be still, and let the world rush on by. Slow and steady wins the race.
The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. Proverbs 21:5
