There is more to life than increasing its speed. – Gandhi
I really, really like this one.
I’ve always worked in a deadline business, so when I’m not at work, I don’t like for things to be hectic.
I like to make a list of things that I need to get done and work through it, and sometimes when I make my list, I put things on it that I’ve already done, not just so I know I don’t have to do them, but so I can mark them off and feel like I’ve already accomplished something.
So. There you go. Slow down. You’ll get there when you get there.
I do that, too, with the lists.
About 15 years ago at work, my friend Marvin saw me walking by in the office at a good clip and said, “Hurry up. You might run out of time.”
I think about that sometimes when I am hurrying.
It makes me bizarrely happy to find a list someone else has discarded and I don’t know why.
Marvin was right, you know.
I know– I love it. And the delivery was perfect.
