Today I Learned . . . Faster Is Not Necessarily Better

This is not a new concept.

Everyone has good intentions when they take on a project, or try to address the piles and piles of things before them.  That could be something as simple as laundry or as “important” as business matters.  (For the record, I think laundry is pretty important, too.  We all want to look good!)

The problem is that in this day and age it is so easy to become focused on just getting things done quickly, pushing out product, that many times the quality of what we are doing suffers as a result.

Today I learned that it is not a bad thing to slow down what you are doing.  We should not only be productive as far as quantity is concerned, but we should take time to enjoy and embrace the process as much as possible.

I’ve heard it referred to as taking time to smell the roses as you walk along the path to your destination.

I’m going to work on doing that in my life, both from a personal perspective as well as in business.
