It is of more importance to be regular and steady than fast and irregular. A man will accomplish more by keeping a constant and steady application than by sometimes going very fast and stopping and delaying time at places where he may have business. Never wait when you have anything to do. Accomplish it at once and while you are at it, finish it complete. Have it arranged as it ought to be so that no misunderstanding can take place.
