Ever heard that old story of the hare and the tortoise? The one where the indescribably slow tortoise agreed to run a race in which the incredibly quick hare was participating? That tortoise was the laughing stock, wasn’t he? He actually seemed to think he had a chance.
In reality, he really didn’t, except that the hare’s complacency gave the old tortoise the upper hand. But not being quick on his feet, he had a predetermined strategy. He knew his desired end goal, he knew his strengths, his weaknesses and those of his opponent and he played his game.
He really shouldn’t have won. The hare was stupid really, so slow and steady, win the tortoise did.
I’m not saying be ok with making slow progress but being consistent doesn’t hurt. Run your race. Build your consistency muscles.
