You know, it's not like we have a choice ... not if we don't want to continue to repeat failures of the past. Going slowly IS the only way to succeed at just about anything. Doing something well requires doing in ... well, WELL. And that requires simply changing things a little at a time. This goes for social movements, the creation of art, raising children. You may to just let things unfold -- but under your guidance and in the right direction.

Always remember to slow down in life; live, breathe, and learn; take a look around you whenever you have time and never forget everything and every person that has the least place within your heart.

Two angles on the same subject:
"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb."
— Winston Churchill

``````````````

BUT you do have to consider progress in your slow journey:
"Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out."
— James Bryan Conan

We all know how important motivation and going slow are. So let's find and share quotes that motivate us to go slow!

Here's one from a SP article slide show to get us started:

"Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still." - Chinese proverb

But you have to try. Because what would you be if you didn't even try? -- Lyle Lovett

Organization will set you free. -- Alton Brown
