I came across this quote by Abraham Lincoln:
“I am a slow walker, but I never walk back.” – Abraham Lincoln
What a nice little reminder that the speed to which we have movement forward is not what matters. Some people can illicit structural change in leaps and bounds; there are times when our “aha” moments lead us to instantly begin doing things differently. Sometimes the movement; however, is slower. There are patterns that need to be broken, new habits that need to be formed and we may get resistance that hinders our progress (both from ourselves and others!) The important piece to keep in mind is that the overall goal is to move forward, regardless of the speed to which you are moving. As long as there is an overall feeling that there is movement, you are on the right track.
