If I have to choose, I will . . . take the less dynamic, indeed even the lazy person, who knows what’s right, than the zealot in the cause of error. (Antonin Scalia, late U.S. Supreme Court justice)
Scalia continues: “He may move slower, but he’s headed in the right direction.” On another occasion, he said, “Movement is not necessarily progress.” Two important ideas: 1) The issue is not speed but direction. Choose the guy who is on the path you know to be the right one. 2) Make sure that the movement you see is advancing the project, not taking it backwards.
Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress. (1 Timothy 4:15)
