This week I almost didn’t have a blog post.
I spent the holidays with family and friends. I wrote very little during the past two weeks. Holidays or vacation may look like the perfect time to get ahead with content, but there’s a catch: my entire routine changed.
All of a sudden, I’m no longer writing on my lunch break, I’m hanging out with my friend. Oops!
I could have prepared better for my change in routine. But let’s face it: we can’t prepare for everything. And sometimes, we just need to slow down or catch a break in order to keep going. Especially if there’s a change in the pattern.
This might seem counterintuitive, but when you slow down, you end up moving faster.
It’s a bit like driving.
You don’t hop in a car and get out of the parking lot like you’re Vin Diesel in Fast And Furious (or at least you shouldn’t…).
…and you don’t go at full speed all the time either. Especially when you see a turn, a roundabout, or are running out of gas.
You slow down.
If you’re slow but consistent, you’ll get there. Consistency gets harder with speed.
If you flip your car over because you’re going too fast, you’re out of the journey – at least for a while. And then what? (Hint: You end up like Daisy.)
Slowing down is necessary. The key is in the balance.
