I recall a paraphrased line from a movie I've seen at some point in the past: “Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.” I couldn't tell you for sure what the movie title was, but it was a US Marine based story and it was in reference to field stripping and cleaning a rifle.
I've found myself in a bit of a hurry for quite some time. My mindset is to always be doing something 'productive' which usually means quite a bit of activity and a lot of distractions. The general mode of operation is to see an end goal, do 85% of the tasks to get there and get pulled on to something more urgent. I have 110 things on my list of shit to do and time to only do 10 of them. It drives me insane and it is my own fault.
Oddly, I constantly recall that line from the movie. I know I should sit on that park bench, assess my priorities, narrow my focus and do one thing at a time instead of carrying a dozen burdens at once. Slow down, do it with care and purpose and then be done with it. Care and purpose. Done. Fast.
