One of my favorite mixed martial artists is Conor McGregor. Few can match his mix of braggadocio, physical talent, and success (ignore the Nate Diaz loss).
One of his most frequently used quotes is:
Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.
In fact, he likes it so much that he got it tattooed on his forearm.
This saying resonates a lot with me because, as this sign I saw on Fair Street in Cold Spring reminds me, slow progress is powerful.
As I work on improving myself and finding my path, there is a temptation to rush. I appreciate urgency, but they don’t call me Slowmar for ‘nothin.
I’m the only one that is going to live my life so I’m going to do it at my pace.
