Whenever you initiate something new, either you move to the extreme and try to do all of the things in a moment, or you walk so slow that it becomes impossible to take the things forward.
The path of moderation is to work in between. Not too fast, nor too slow. You neither run nor you stop, rather you keep walking on your path. This is the magic of moderation.
When you practice moderation in every aspect of your life you gain stability in your life.
