Hitting a Brick Firewall

"Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around to catch you"
-John De Paolo

I feel like I've been running on a virtual roller coaster. Like a drug-addict hunting down their next hit - my brain is frantically chasing down more information. I can't seem to make it through one piece of information before I start thinking about another - and moments later I don't even remember what I was thinking about before I got distracted. Then this quote hit me like a brick firewall. I need to take a deep breath. I need to slow down. I need to tell my myself that its okay to tackle one thing at a time. Mr. De Paolo was right - all things will come around. And I bet if I slow down - I will have more time to enjoy them all!
