5 Signs You're a Tortoise or a Hare

1.  Takes off at top speed
2.  Excels at sprints, but loses steam when it comes to marathons
3.  Needs exterior motivation to get moving - a dog chasing will do nicely
4.  Easily distracted
5.  Wants instant gratification

1.  Is slow getting off the starting line.
2.  Will never be viewed as an "overnight success"
3.  Keeps moving - crisis or no crisis
4.  Focused/determined
5.  Is willing to take as much time as needed to reach goals

Writers:  Are you in the game for the long haul? How do you handle rejection/delays/disappointments?

Readers:  How do you stick with the projects you start? Do you have any tips for finishing with the same enthusiasm as when you began?

I am in for the long haul, but I cannot say that I am not tempted to be the hare sometimes. :) The best way for me to maintain momentum and focus is to trust the Lord for help.
