…yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao-Tzu
We can thank Chinese philosopher and poet Lao-Tzu for today’s quote. For me, it serves as a reminder that it is better to be thorough than it is to rush. Because ultimately, that which needs to be done is best completed in its own time. And I’m finding that while in the moment expedience can often seem to be the best course of action, over the long run rushing things to completion often leads to more work than would have been created if I’d only had the presence to be patient when I had the chance.
With that said, as we get started this week I want to encourage you let the things you’ve set in motion run their course. For while it may seem that whatever you’re working on cannot wait another moment, if you make a habit of focusing on the completion process instead of completion time, somehow things have a way of working themselves out.
