Twitter Link Roundup #314 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

“Hurry slowly” is rooted in an old Latin phrase: “Festina Lente,” or “Make haste slowly,” or “more haste, less speed.”

What does that mean?

Erasmus explains,

Things that ripen prematurely are wont suddenly to go limp. What grows slowly and steadily can endure.

Many great and enduring thinkers throughout history have concluded that making great strides in progress, working hard, and striving for greatness is important. But equally important is doing these things at a slower, steady pace if you want that progress to have strength and longevity.

“Let’s slow down,” Steinbeck wrote in his journal while working on The Grapes of Wrath, “not in pace or wordage but in nerves.”

Do yourself a favor and go forward with your work meticulously, steadfastly, even intensely – but take care to do so at a thoughtful pace.
