Elogio de la lentitud – Carl Honoré – Google Books
His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Every day I open up my inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book has changed their lives.
What sort of life should I be leading? What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this eloogio world? All Londoners should read it.
But faster is not always better. But look at the world today.
We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. But what do you say to people who claim that the world will inevitably go on speeding hinore and that a Slow revolution is pie in the sky? How can I make the world a better place? The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. What is my purpose?
Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down. How has slowing down changed your life?
Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations.
Even I forget to slow down from time to time. There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend ellgio book enough. Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! What will a Slow world look like? I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more.
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. The world is too complex and interconnected for that.
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. Take the rise of feminism. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.
At work, I am much more productive and creative. Impatience is also part of being human. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. I say look at the history books. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. By limiting working hours. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia.
What inspired you to embrace Slow? For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: I am a skeptic by nature. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting.
Now I never feel rushed any more. Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow.
In Praise of Slow
In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all lenhitud us. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of honnore deeper problems. However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course.
