Do not try to hurry things. Ignore minor considerations. If you hurry things, your personality will not come into play. If you let yourself get distracted by minor considerations, nothing important will ever get finished.

Confucius,  The Analects translated by: Arthur Waley, Harper Collins Publishing, 1992, p. 175
