I’m not slow, just not as fast as others might want me to be.
Slow and careful is always better than fast and reckless.
I always make mistakes when I allow people to rush me, then I wind up spending more time doing things over again. It’s funny how people will take their time doing what they do, but want you to hurry up for them. (Time: Them–98%, You–2%)
I have a sign I put on my desk once in a while and it says “I will be done as soon as I finish.” When I don’t put it out and someone comes to me to ask how long before they can have this or that, I say with the sweetest and most sincere voice, “Just for you, I will be done as soon as I finish.”
