The Power of Slow

I read Mindfulness makes you more productive over at Brazen Careerist. It’s an interesting post which in turn took me to the blog The Power of Slow. There’s this great quote:

Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
Eddie Cantor

I like these sentences that I picked from the About-page at The Power of Slow:

Life is in the details. Don’t let it whiz by.

Christine Hohlbaum who runs The Power of Slow is on Twitter as @powerofslow.

Some of my details in life right now: I listen to “The Essential Leonard Cohen” and enjoy some dark chocolate. Life’s good.

I got so interested in learning more that I ordered Christine’s book The Power of Slow: 101 Ways to Save Time in Our 24/7 World. Saving time is not possible but we can learn to use it wiser.

    It is an appealing concept. I suspect that rushing causes people to get things wrong – maybe even more things wrong- and that slow helps you see clearly and get things right. When you get the book share more.

    Rushing often causes things to go wrong. Do it properly and do it once, rush and you have to do it twice (counting the fix too).

    The book has not arrived yet, I’ll post a review when I have read it.
