Great is the road I climb, but the garland offered by an easier effort is not worth the gathering.
~ Sextus Propertius (50BC-16AD) Roman Poet
“Progress has little to do with speed, but much to do with direction.”
It’s not how fast you go in life that defines progress but more about where you go while on your way there. Making the right choices in life makes all the difference between reaching your goals and dreams and ending up at a dead end. If you choose a path that leads you into a trap, then getting there no matter the speed you travel will most likely lead to trouble and perhaps, even tragedy. It’s always best to ponder over the choice of paths that are before you in life and give careful consideration to the motivation behind your choices before choosing which one to follow. After making your choice, move at a steady pace and allow yourself to make any necessary course corrections due to any detours you may encounter along your journey. Remember that the more tempting road or the one more traveled is not always the best one. Think long and hard before taking a step on to a new path. Life is accomplished one step at a time always doing your best to move forward and not go backward.
