Rush, rush, rush. Decide, execute, move quickly! I get so caught up with getting stuff done that I rarely press the pause button. This may be fine on the surface. But the result is I am not as efficient and effective as I should be. This morning, I sent two emails to my colleagues when one, more thorough email would have sufficed. I created unnecessary “noise” and potential confusion for them, because I didn’t stop long enough to think fully.
If something is important, hit the pause button. Remember, “It’s better to do the right thing slowly than the wrong thing quickly (Peter Turla).”
