In our fast paced world, how often do we overlook the simplicity and necessity of this statement?

Leadership can fall into the same trap if we are not careful. It is easy to think the work should move along faster, goals accomplished sooner, and people respond more quickly.

A good rule of thumb is to take it one step at a time.
