Things to Think About - It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier


It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop - Confucius

What wonderful comfort for those of us who are a bit slower at figuring things out at times, or are feeling a bit overwhelmed.  Many years ago I interviewed a successful entrepreneur who had overcome many setbacks before achieving his success.  I asked him what kept him going in what Shakespeare called those dark moments of the soul, and I will never forget his response.

Smiling, he leaned back in his chair and said, “Pepper, I know it can’t kill me, I know I’m not dead if I can just keep wiggling, so sometimes I just focus on the wiggling part”.  Well, he may not have been as eloquent as Confucius, but you get the picture—sometimes it’s incremental progress that wins the day.

Good luck on your journey, and don’t forget—keep wiggling!
