There’s a saying attributed to many people, but has long been a mantra of mine when it comes to creative endeavours.
“It’s a marathon… not a sprint.”
If you expect anything to work overnight, you’ll be sadly disappointed. If you try and move too fast, you’ll miss the bigger picture.
And despite having clung to this advice through much of my professional life, when it comes to my travels I seem to have forgotten everything I know about pacing myself.
