In Praise of Slow

It allows us to reflect on the big questions: What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! No, the world has always been this way.

By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them. lentiyud

Go back to the kitchen! But look at the world today.

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains!

I am no utopian. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast?

Elogio de la Lentitud : Carl Honore :

We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness.

He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. I guess what I really want is for readers to grasp the very counter-cultural idea that the best way to survive and thrive in the fast-paced modern world is not to speed up but to slow down. Now I never feel rushed any more. But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding up and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky?

The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life.

What is my purpose? What inspired you to embrace Slow? But faster is not always better.

And the green movement has followed a similar arc: At work, I am much more productive and creative. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly.

Take the rise of feminism. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! I feel so much more alive now. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.

Obviously there is a long way to go to create a world of perfect gender equality, but a woman today could hardly imagine how eloggio life was limited for her grandmother.
