This quotation is full of wisdom. It will always be true, and it comes from one of my best friends, Matt Davis. He said it when we were out for a run last year, in Colorado.
It's true about business, and it's true about life. So as I work on my New Year's resolutions and am tempted to rush through them, I'm taking a longer view and will keep going at my plans and dreams one step at a time-but without the urgency that they have to happen right now.
I stay more present
, and it's much more fun and productive than rushing from task to task with such haste that what I am doing and why gets lost.
Matthew Arnold said, "Life is about being and becoming, rather than having and getting." If we do this at a steady pace with our eye on the goal, we can't go wrong. We're going to be here a while, God willing, so let's focus on what really counts for us and for others.
Wishing you and yours a joyful 2016!
