Just read this Business Insider article about Tim Ferriss in which he shares the quote:

Jenny Sauer-Klein, cofounder of the acrobatics-yoga hybrid AcroYoga, introduced him to the idea “No hurry, no pause.”

This reminded me of the principle from Tom’s Danzan Ryu dojo, which I subsequently found out is an old sniper saying:

Slow is smooth and Smooth is fast

This was such an important principle for executing techniques that relied on being in sync with your uke.

I have not thought of it in a long time and it applies in the same way that Tim uses the Breema principle – slow down and smoothly execute and you will accomplish your goal.

Actually I use this a lot at work when the shit is hitting the fan to keep focused and not make mistakes.
