One thing life has taught me is that rushing/hurrying is almost always counterproductive. Hurrying, as I understand it, involves pushing oneself beyond one’s optimal level. This leads to inefficiency, error and unnecessary stress. Speed is much better accomplished through focus, persistence and economy of action.
