Progress Vs Speeding in the wrong direction

“Yes, and I have delayed you by my hurry;” Socrates

Excerpt From

The Republic

Plato

The pressure of the modern world means individuals need to show results for whatever they do and fast. Unfortunately this has made it such that people always seem to hit the ground running, sometimes in the wrong direction. We have to caution that not all motion is progress. Sometimes motion can be a waste of energy and resources.

Provision ought to be made for reflexive thinking. We must balance reflection and action such that we do not procrastinate, but think and reflect we must to make real progress.

Dr Ande Elisha
