While people are reading 15 books in January and 12 books in February, I’m still at book number one in this year. I’m a slow reader, I don’t like to binge through the chapters but read slowly and gradually, falling in love with each character and guessing what could happen next.
I just sat on the dinner table and was seeing what has been made when everyone started eating. There were some rice and some dal. I mixed the dal with the rice and by the time I looked up, my family was half done with their plates and by the time I started eating my dad got up from the table and washed his hands. I’m slow, I like to eat slowly and enjoy the meal, what’s wrong with that?
Me and my friend started studying at the same time, by the time I was done with chapter one, he had already started chapter five. I’m slow at understanding concepts while he learns them quickly, so what? I eventually ended up scoring more than him. Even if I hadn’t, how does it matter if I’m slow and I like to learn things slowly and understand everything in detail?
I’m slow at everything, so what? I might get my success late. I might get my promotion late. As long as I’m delivering quality, and I know I’m doing it with all my heart, I will get everything eventually, now won’t I?
I know, the world likes the quick and the efficient. I’m not quick, but I’m efficient and I deliver quality. Speed hardly matters when people pay for quality and not quantity.
Take your time, walk slow, think about what you are going to do next, do it with all your heart. Things might come late, but they will come in.
