Rush or Flow?

rushingAndrewBertramunsplashRushing is everywhere – you rush, I rush, others rush, time speeds up. Which is better, to rush or to flow? Rushing implies urgency, haste and rapid movement. Flow implies fluidity, steadiness and continuity. Personally, I vote for flow. Picture yourself in a fast-flowing river. If you are rushing, you are pushing against it. If you flow, you are aligning with it.

Flow involves steady and fluid movement, allowing you to acclimate to what is happening around you. You maintain your center and can respond to whatever happens. Rushing involves frenzy and a lack of control. You may lose your center and merely react to what happens.

Develop your ability to flow. It serves you better than rushing and will get you where you want to go.
