“Speed is not part of the true Way of strategy. Speed implies that things seem fast or slow, according to whether or not they are in rhythm. Whatever the Way, the master of strategy does not appear fast….Of course, slowness is bad. Really skillful people never get out of time, and are always deliberate, and never appear busy. ”
–Miyamoto Musashi, A Book of Five Rings
Agree, disagree? In my observation, this is very true.
