Slow and steady wins the race. Haste is waste. All these words say that going slow is a better option. But we are now in a speed age. ‘Run for a win’ is present slogan. If a scientist makes a discovery late in the night and he tries to register his patent after a nap, some other scientist may register a similar discovery during his nap time.
To analyse the situation, we can see that slow and speed are just words of comparison. They are relative to each other. Without one the other do not exist.
In my opinion, starting slow and adding speed whenever required is a good concept. Starting small is natural. A baby, a plant, flow of a river and everything increases speed as they grow or move forward. A good friendship also starts with few words of introduction and increases to a strong bonding.
