Hasten slowly!

Last Update: April 12, 2016

In my part of the world there's a road sign that says: Speed Kills! I find it appropriate here for members of the Wealthy Affiliate family, especially the newbies like myself, to remind us all that we shall not, repeat NOT, become millionaires overnight. If you want to get in here and rush to the millions in a hurry, it won't happen, my friend. Please remember to go diligently into the Get Started Here lessons from start to finish - don't skip the tasks or assignments given, even if you think you know the game well; there are always new things to learn, no matter how seemingly insignificant. Be patient, carefully follow instructions because everything we learn is going to come in handy. Rushing on in your mind to the millions you've heard people making in online marketing will only contribute to you missing the speed breaks along the way which will help you slow down, review your progress towards your goals and focus your attention on what needs to be done next. Easy does it!

Yes, I think just being marketers or having that entrepreneurial mind set we have a tendency to rush ahead a bit. I have to remind myself to slow down to go fast so thank you for the added insight.

This is definitely a good thing to keep in mind. I've found myself rushing to create content and integrate plugins, but I haven't even gotten very far through the lessons yet. I made a few mistakes in my rush to get everything going, so I had to tell myself to slow down and do everything right along with the lessons instead of assuming I know what I should do.

Hello, kdev! Oftentimes the mind tricks us into believing we know it all and that leads to mistakes. It's OK to make mistakes, but we must also learn from them.
Here's to happy learning!
