Why do we live so fast today?
The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. But look at the world today. The boom in meditation or mindfulness in the corporate world is another sign that business is waking up to the power and wisdom of slowing down. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. How can I make the world a better place?
What is my purpose? Take the rise of feminism. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more.
But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course.
Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow
It will take time. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in honor seconds! How has slowing down changed your life?
But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding up and that a Slow lentituc is pie in the sky? A personal wake-up call.
Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. Even I forget to slow down from time to time. I feel so much more alive now. What will a Slow world look like?
I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. I hope that they will pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the world around them. I think the Slow honire is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago.
No, the world has always been this way. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. 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.
A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. It is the unofficial lentiyud and bible of the Slow Movement.
I suspect even the Dalai Llentitud rushes unnecessarily sometimes!
Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? What sort of life should I be leading?
What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? What lentigud you to embrace Slow? However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

At work, I am much more productive and creative. Now I never feel rushed any more. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work hhonore sex to food and parenting.
I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: Forward-thinking companies all over the world are honoee for ways to help their staff slow down. The world is too complex and interconnected for that.
I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and joy to life — reading to my children, sharing a glass of wine with my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to xe at a beautiful sunset. Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience!
In Praise of Slow
Vibrant and very readable. All Londoners should read it. But faster is not always better.
