Fast is Slow. Slow is Fast

Within the last 24 hours I've encountered two examples of sensitive situations in which the wisest advice is "Slow down." The desire to speed through a sensitive matter is entirely understandable. The issues are unpleasant and people want them resolved pronto. Unfortunately, rushing can create new problems. The counter-intuitive strategy of slowing down will save time in the long run by preventing possible mistakes and by improving the overall quality of the resolution.

As Dwight Eisenhower used to say, "Let's not be in a hurry to make our mistakes."
