Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness.

By giving them more control over their schedules so honoge can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago. However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make.


The good news is that the Slow movement is growing fast! I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and lenritud to life — reading to my children, sharing a glass of wine with my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to gaze carll a beautiful sunset.

Impatience is also part of being human. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace?

The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. But look at the world today. If you are eolgio rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

And the green movement has followed a similar arc: Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.

How can I make the world a better place? A personal wake-up call. 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?

Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience!

But I believe it will happen. What inspired you to embrace Slow?

There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough. And it seems to be working. Why do we live so fast today? Go back to the kitchen! Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.

But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. It allows us to reflect on the big questions: At work, I am much more productive and creative. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems.

I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. It will take time. How has slowing down changed your life? But you have to realistic. I am a skeptic by nature.
