Are you more of a tortoise (slow but steady) or a hare (quick but inconsistent)?

I bet most people said the tortoise just so they'd be the winner of the race.

It also helps to live in an area that promotes exercise & an active lifestyle without you having to go out of your way. That's one reason why Burlington, VT was recently named America's Healthiest City. Not the only reason, but one reason.

Slow and steady get things done. And samantha, I've been underweight just about my whole life. Never been overweight. And the most important thing when it comes to weight is what you eat. Not your lifestyle (though that is important too).

Yes everyone is slow and steady at getting things done...that's why the US population is most fat

As the saying goes, it pays to be slow.

(tried to cram my comment in the character limit. terrible. )

The question poser is slow in an environment that demands speed. They compensate with the fallacy that quality work can't be consistently created under tight deadlines. My job demands higher quality at a faster pace each year. We are improve over last year's performance or lose business.

Slow and steady feels exaggerated, but that's me I suppose.

This question made me mad...I work better when I'm under pressure so I work fast but still do a great job. I'm fast and consistent so I guess I'm a Torthare

I'm more middle. But lean towards fast.

I work fast. And I get it done well most of the time.
So, I am intact more of a hare. But, I do take my time when it's important

I am actually fast, but not extremely consistent.

06/19/11 1:33 am

Okay, I own tortoises and they are super fast when motivated

06/19/11 12:11 am

Actually I am more fast, but mostly consistent.

06/19/11 12:09 am

Both slow and inconsistent.

I definitely have spurts of productivity, but I feel like I'm always going.

I'm a hare. I can't wait and constantly do something.

06/18/11 3:31 pm

I was gonna write a comment, but I didn't wanna take the time and stop

06/18/11 2:44 pm

To be honest, I'd pick tortoise. The name, however, prohibits that

06/18/11 11:00 am

Quality over quantity.

I'll never own a thriving successful business, but at the same time, I'll always produce a "darn" good final product... :)
