For those perfectionists amongst us, this might be a helpful quote to remember. In this fast paced world, it is not difficult to adopt the belief that the more we can achieve, and the faster we can achieve it, the better. However, if one is not careful, this way of thinking may cause excessive stress in our lives and affects us in negative ways.
So next time you are overly stressed about your performance and your "failure" to meet your goals in a timely manner, take time to remind yourself that it does not really matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.
Food for thought.
