The efficient laborer

4-8-10 slow paced brain

"The truly efficient laborer will be found not to crowd his day with work, but will saunter to his task, surrounded by a wide halo of ease and leisure" -Henry David Thoreau

Although this doesn't sound very practical in today's fast-paced world, something about this quote from Thoreau resonates with me.... and after the last 3 busy and long days conducting training, I think I will try to embrace the spirit of this quote- at least for today.

I do have much to get organized and I need to regroup for my next work project.... but today I will not rush myself.... and often, with a relaxed attitude, I find I actually can accomplish more than I think.

Although this morning it is only 35 degrees, the sun is shining bright and the birds are singing. I predict a pleasant day ahead!
