Few things happen overnight. Okay, you can have your orders delivered in twenty-four hours, your movies play on demand, information is available with a quick search and the world spins a breakneck speed. It is easy to get caught in the whirlwind, racing to perform jobs faster and faster. Our anxiety builds when we can’t complete every task on our lengthy lists.
There are advantages to ambling along at a leisurely pace. We can make small mistakes without dire consequences and adjust our course as needed. It also grants us time to spend with family and friends and honor other obligations. By moving deliberately, we build strength and we gather momentum. The work moves forward with less effort and we find ourselves carried across the finish line. We grant ourselves precious moments to savor our journey. Dripping like water, we carve deep impressions on solid rock.
How will you make your mark?
Keep on writing.
