If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far? Go together.

As someone who has been on the slow-the-freak-down bandwagon for the past decade, this quote resonates. What can I say? I’m a slow learner. And still moving too fast.

Process is hard. Compromise is hard. Waiting for other people to keep up is hard. Also in the challenging basket: talking about feelings, managing conflict and expectations, confronting things that are eye-rollingly obvious to me but apparently not to someone else, being vulnerable, asking for help, stopping, breathing. Sometimes, it seems easier to do it yourself.But to what end? To what solitary end?

Shall we simply say: Work in progress.
