In the mythical race between the tortoise and the hare, you are surely the speedy rabbit that races ahead to achieve an early advantage. However, you can beat the game by role-playing the part of the steady tortoise that continues to plod along. If you don't slow yourself down to a sustainable pace, circumstances just might do it for you. Ironically, you may be pleasantly surprised by reaching your goal sooner than you expect if you take your time. Remember, this is a marathon and not a sprint.
