Slow down

Sometimes you need a reminder to slow down. I know I do. The pressure to hurry up and get things done can send you over the cliff.

I seem to be particularly vulnerable to target fixation. I tend to zero in on my objective to the exclusion of other things that need attention also. Just knowing this is a help. Being able to focus is important but slowing down, stepping back and getting the bigger picture is absolutely necessary.

Do you feel guilty when you do slow down? If you do then that is a sure sign that you really need to slow down.

Note to self: you posted this picture and a similar admonition to slow down one year ago. How many times do you really need to tell yourself the same thing?  Hmmm?
