Pace and context

The pace of work is the speed with which you turn out your work. You can be slow or you can be fast. The context is the environment. The context will decide your content and the pace of work. If your pace of work is out of context, you are bound to miss something which you have created.

How fast you think you can work is not important. What is more important is how fast you have to be working. I recall an old story I read somewhere: A tortoise started moving from the backyard of a house and took a week’s time to reach the rear portion of the house. It walked further and took a week to come to the central hall of the house. After one more week of moving, it come to the central hall of the house. After one more week of moving, it came to the front portion of the house. Then it took one more week to come out of the house to the open area. As the tortoise came out of the house, the house collapsed. The tortoise was very happy and said: ‘Thank God, I came out very fast. If only I had taken more time what would happened to me!

Some of us are like that tortoise. We are oblivious of the demands on our time and we are under the illusion that we are already fast. It calls for a self introspection to find out whether our pace of work matches the external requirement.
