"I could dance with you till the cows come home. Better still, I'll dance with the cows and you come home." Groucho Marx from the 1933 film Duck Soup.
I read a fascinating blog post today from Maya Bailey that had a thought in it that some things "that maybe true for you, but it's not true for me". It made me think of the hurry everyone is in, and like waiting for the cows to come home, I vow to lead the "unhurried" life, despite what the world says I should do.
I'm as over there on the Type A scale, driven, impatient, as the next real estate professional to get results. But do we have to be CRAZY about everything in the fast pace of our lives? I realize with Facebook, and Twitter and Active Rain and all sorts of social media and technology gizmos the world is begging us to hop on board that train and go 100 mph down the track.
But my simple question is this to all the hurried types: Who is driving the train? And maybe secondarily why are you so in a rush to get there? Is there a fire you have to get to like your house is burning down? Not likely. There is a real art form of living in just slowing down, at least to know YOU are the one in control and not the other way around with life controlling you.

At least until the cows come home...
