When you’re unsure of what you’re doing, hurrying through it does not improve your outcome. When you don’t know where it is you must go, going quickly will not get you there.
If you think dashing around makes you look important, you’re mistaken. It shouts to the world of confusion, disorganization, aimlessness and insecurity.
Here’s a strategy far superior to hurrying. Start sooner.
Start sooner, and give yourself the luxury of being calm, focused, highly effective, and more pleasant to be around. Start sooner, and leverage your time instead of rushing to squeeze your efforts into it.
Work, play, and live at a pace that enables life’s richness to come to full fruition. Get the very most out of your time by beginning to make good use of it the instant it arrives.
Even if you’ve been late all your life, you can begin right away to start sooner. Start sooner, for a new moment, laden with brilliant possibilities, has just been added to your life.
