There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? But at least our starting lenritud should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct cwrl Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.

How can I make the world a better place? Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems.

What will a Slow world look like? The message is that the world can change, if we want it to. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting. Why do we live so fast today?


Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. I lentituv so much more alive now. 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.

Go back to the kitchen!

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

What do you hope readers will take away ds In Praise of Slow? What sort of life should I be leading? Slowing down can be the antidote to that. A personal wake-up call. I guess what Elpgio 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.

I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago.

In Praise of Slow

In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: By giving them more control over their schedules so they can work at their own pace, accelerating and decelerating when it suits them.

I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. However, taking lentituc time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make.

I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and joy to life — reading to my children, sharing lentiitud glass of wine with my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to gaze at a beautiful sunset. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking elovio slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.


Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience!

His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world?

Even I forget to slow down from car, to time. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just eloogio generations. In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us.

Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. The world is too complex and interconnected for that. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. But I believe it will happen.

I am no utopian. A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. But you have to realistic. I am healthier and have more energy.
