We live in a world where we are told that quicker is better. Faster, faster, faster.
- Fast food
- The “hot” take
- Crash dieting
Someone is going to catch us if we slow down. Keep pressing down the accelerator.
But are they? Or is that a story we are making up in our heads?
It doesn’t mean that we have to believe that.
It’s easy to look at examples of businesses or people moving quickly but we have to ask ourselves, “Have they always been moving at “this speed” or are we just watching what happens after momentum takes over after a long winding patient process of action?”
Be intentional about what you are doing. The accelerator doesn’t always have to be pushed to the floor.
The journey will take many unexpected turns. Relish those. Learn. Adapt. But don’t rush.
Things happen when they happen.
But sometimes it’s not as fast as we may want. And we may not be able to control it.
So why get flustered?
Keep chopping wood. Keep progressing forward. Keep living your purpose.
Your time will come.
