“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” African Proverb
Is your goal to go fast or go far? Personally, I want to go far. I’d like to go as fast as possible, but I’ve learned that fast can lead to false progress, leading me to places that I didn’t intend – or really want – to go.
Yesterday I attended a holiday party hosted by a new friend of mine. I’ve known her for less than a year and took a chance to attend her party. I wasn’t sure if I would know anyone. To be honest, I was hesitant to go. For those of you who know me, that may be hard to believe. I am an extreme extrovert. I can talk to pretty much anyone. But those first few minutes in a new environment when I am “flying blind” make me incredibly anxious.
