Patience and Speed are best friends.
Have you ever heard of the saying, slow and steady wins the race? What about, Success loves speed? Do you wonder which is the most appropriate to use in your pursuit of success?
The good news is that both are very important and they work together to bring out the best results. Gary Vaynerchuk, a successful entrepreneur puts it like this, "Patience and speed rub each other and a diamond comes from that."
Success Loves Speed.
We are surrounded by opportunities and possibilities daily but only those who are prepared take advantage. Only the prepared look lucky on the face of opportunities. They exhibit strength and willingness to try while the unprepared look weak and vulnerable.
You need to move with speed and accomplish as much as you can. When you recognise an opportunity, take action immediately and get through with it. "Speed is 4 billion times more important than perfection" according to Gary Vaynerchuk.
Slow and Steady Wins the Race.
A city cannot be built in a single day. You cannot built a career in a single day, it takes time. What you do every single day impacts the outcome of the future. A strong structure requires a firm foundation. A strong career needs a good foundation too.
There is no short-cut to a place worth going. There is no short-cut to success, in fact, the shortest route to success may turn out to be longer if you make a mistake because of speed.
Building something stable takes time and requires hard work and perseverance. The small daily disciplines generate a great outcome through the law of compounding effect.

Speed plus Patience Equals Success.
Patience and speed work out together to bring out the best in every endeavor. Daily activities need to be taken care of with speed while looking at the big picture. There are only a handful of opportunities available. These need to be recognized fast enough and action taken promptly. Patience is also required to realise the final result. A little perseverance and persistence goes a long way.
Never underestimate the power of small efforts put together on a consistent basis. After all, don't drops from a tap eventually fill a bucket?
