One Thing at a Time

by Tom Swift

In the performance of almost all projects, going slow is better than going fast.

Embrace small steps.

Be wary of giant leaps.

Small progress has so much going for it: engagement, not completion, is what calms the mind.

Slow and steady doesn’t merely win the race. It’s also a pace at which you can see the path. The solution you discover during a deliberate jaunt is more likely to endure.

When you sprint you see little but the finish line. Nothing else matters but getting there rightnow. And when you do you are too tired for much of anything else.

Celebrate the start. Think little about The End.
