“It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.”
If we just run faster, we can make up for poor planning, lack of preparation, laziness, etc. Or we can do the work ahead of time so we don’t have to scramble at the last minute. One choice is wise, the other is inefficient and unsustainable over time. Which one do you need to make? Will making the right one make you faster over the long run?
