A group of people travelling together can only progress at the pace of the slowest member, which can be annoying for those who are eager to push ahead. You are one of those leaders. But everyone is different, and speed isn’t the only measure of success. Know that if you make time to go back and help someone who is falling behind, they will repay the favour later.
