Preparation and slowing down is a key to success.
I comment on other people’s WordPress blogs on occasion. I rush from one thing to another, and make a spelling error in the comment, and when I hit enter, I am no longer able to edit to reverse my error. Such comments with spelling errors undermines the impact of my comment, and I am unable to do anything about it.
Because I am involved in so many projects I often lack the time to prepare, and through rushing I miss something, or make errors. In life it often is a one-chance situation, one shot to win the business order, make an impression or grab the opportunity. It is these situations where you step off the cliff, and fate is sealed, you plunge into the consequences of that act hoping it was the right one.
Disaster is high for the unprepared and rusher. There is only one answer to this situation: slow down; make time to prepare; concentrate on quality over quantity.
