Thanks to my friend Scott McPherson for forwarding me this video of Carl Honoré’s TEDTalk from 2005, “In praise of slowness.”
As Honoré says in his talk:
“We live in a world stuck in fast forward; a world obsessed with speed; with doing everything faster; cramming more and more into less and less. Every moment of the day feels like a race against the clock.”
I’d love for you to watch this video and let me know what you think. Agree? Disagree? Are there ways in which you’ve successfully slowed down your work or life in a way that made you more productive and happy?
