  1. I’m usually speedy like the Ocelot when I should be slow like the Sloth. There’s always too much to do and not enough time to do it!

  2. I wish there was more hours in the day to be slow like a sloth but I never seem to have enough time and have to rush,rush, rush.

  3. I want to think that I can adapt to each situation. Somethings need to be taken care of quickly like the Ocelot would, others need a more careful review and need to be handled more carefully as the sloth might portrait! I guess I am a multi animal:). Why not appreciate the best of all:)

  4. I am both: I am slow and steady to make sure what I do is done correctly, but I am also fast in that I have lots of stuff to do and want to honor my commitments and responsibilities.

  5. I prefer to be slow and steady like a sloth, but teaching often requires me to be more like Ocelot. There is never enough time it seems!
