In hindsight, my perspective has shifted. I now see it’s not speed of doing that matters. It’s speed of learning. And to learn, you frequently must slow down. A rushed mind misses obvious lessons. A rushed team cannot see clearly the decisions you are trusting them to make.
“There are moments in our lives when we summon the courage to make choices that go against reason, against common sense and the wise counsel of people we trust. But we lean forward nonetheless because, despite all risks and rational argument, we believe that the path we are choosing is the right and best thing to do…This is the kind of passionate conviction that sparks romances, wins battles, and drives people to pursue dreams others wouldn’t dare. Belief in ourselves and in what is right catapults us over hurdles, and our lives unfold.”
