“A task takes as long as it takes.” Amish proverb
Five minutes ago, it was January 1st. And now it’s already February?!
I chose the proverb “A task takes as long as it takes” this month for a special reason. I have a lot to accomplish in the next few weeks and I need a reminder to slow down and give a task–any task–the time it deserves.
There’s a lot to be said for slowing down and doing something well. For me, when I rush, I make mistakes. So…in this all-too-short month of February, with an all-too-tall to-do list, I’m going to try and do less, but do it better.
Stay tuned…I’ll let you know how I’m doing with that goal next month.
