What's your pace?

Few days back I went to buy food, with my mini-me(my niece) tagging along. After a while, she bugged me to go home. Still having to buy her brother's chicken rice, I paced up, to me it was just brisk walking but she was almost running, and she did that unhesitatingly, without complaining. Despite of her small steps, doing her best to keep up to my pace. I couldn't help but to relate that to my job. Us, being the mere immature, clueless, almost inexperienced, with barely much knowledge, came into the working life, like kiddies. Our steps are small, very much immature. Yet we tried to keep up, though it means running. Some are at advantage, those with larger steps(some of us have more experience than others - like my friends who diligently and tirelessly went to wards and clinics to learn when we were students. Of course, they're at much more advantage compared to me), or perhaps those who have senior colleagues who are very much willing to tell where are the potholes so we could avoid them, where are the slippery road so won't trip and fall. Nevertheless, we do learn through the hard way too. So much to describe on that, so I'll just pass.

As the title goes, what is your pace? And would it ultimately matter? Very subjective ain't it? Anyway, I would say that it is better to have someone who keeps on going despite of the pace (which would be very much influenced by many other factors) rather than someone who *deliberately* dragged others down. And I ain't saying about those whom fate had decided that their path would be a rocky one. Who I meant by those who *deliberately* dragged others would be those who are fortunate enough to get the job but perhaps their vocabularies don't include responsibility, trust, reliance and selflessness. O Allah, do protect me, my family and those around me from such terrible character. 

*the above was written long way back and is only edited and published now. 

Just to remind myself, here are words of your own dear: 
"Tire remains a mere word as long as you have passion and perseverance in what you are doing".

"O you who have believed, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful"
"Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Bersabarlah kamu dan kuatkanlah kesabaran kamu, dan bersedialah serta bertaqwalah kamu kepada Allah supaya kamu berjaya mencapai kemenangan"

(Ali Imran 2: verse 200)
