Slow Down for Better Results
Like the tortoise who beat the hare by managing its energy and keeping a steady pace, slowing down is about optimizing for the process.
The situations you’re in will vary. The specific approaches that help you slow down might change. But the underlying principles remain the same:
- Staying intentional, you do what’s most important to you.
- Focusing on quality, you do things well.
- Focusing on the long-term, you care for your wellbeing and do things you can sustain.
- Letting go of attachments, you remain open to possibilities, so you can do what’s optimal.
Mindful is slow. Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast.
Some practice, anyone?
