"Nature does not hurry,
yet everything is accomplished."
-- Lao Tzu
[Classic post from 4-12-14]
I've been traveling all week here and there talking with clients and one thing has stood out very clearly in my travels. That is that there are a lot of impatient people on the road. It seems that regardless of how much over the speed limit I might be driving, there is someone on my tail, so I pull over in plenty of time to allow them the space they seek.
Does it really matter who gets there first? Or second? Or last? Often the differences are marked in seconds.
I like how Soren Kierkegaard put this in perspective: "Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it." I sure saw a lot of that this week.
I'm out of practice, but it was interesting to watch.
