The Message

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop is a quote by Confucius, a Chinese teacher, editor, and philosopher. When it comes to goals, it’s not always necessary to put pressure on yourself to work quickly or even have a specific goal at all. Give yourself permission to proceed at a pace that suits you best, but remember to persevere when something unexpected gets in the way.
