“Patience is also a form of action” (Great Work quote)

“Patience is also a form of action.”
~ Auguste Rodin

I’m a rusher.

Busy busy busy.

Rush rush rush.

And sometimes moving at a rapid pace is the right thing to do – no getting bogged down in miscellaneous detail or perfectionism or the trickling away of courage that can sometimes happen.

And sometimes moving at a rapid pace just doesn’t help.  You make everything urgent, you skip details, you do it OK rather than extraordinarily.

Even though I’m quoting Rodin at the top of the post (and of course I’m writing this because I need the reminder even more than you might), I might just end with Einstein.  He said…

“Everything should be as simple as possible, but no simpler.”

I think you can replace “simple” with “as fast” and “as slow” … they make an equally powerful point.

==> Where do you need some patience right now?
