Pacing is Everything [*]

[*] Personal Time Management by Marion E.Haynes is an excellent book on this subject.

Some new employees are so eager to succeed that they set an initial pace that is so fast it leads them into trouble. They are so intense about making a good showing that they make needless job-oriented mistakes, offend coworkers, or wind up with a “flash in the pan” or “eager beaver” image that they never live down.

Professionals set a slower, steady pace. They are not as concerned about where they are at the beginning as where they will be in thirty days. They know that it takes time to learn new tasks, build sound human relationships, and ultimately make a team contribution. They recognize that it is their responsibility to fit in to the existing environment first. Only then will they be in a position to offer suggestions for improvement and contribute on a high level.
