Someone asked me recently what was my biggest regret in life.
Being in a hurry, I said.
Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all that rushing.
Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.
