Take the rise of feminism.

The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. But look at the world today. At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? And the green movement has followed a similar arc: Obviously there is a long way to go to create a world of perfect gender equality, but a woman today could hardly imagine how severely life was limited for her grandmother.

Xe am no utopian. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: And it seems to be working. I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! All Londoners should read it. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? But faster is not always better. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: I hope that they honor pause and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the world around them.


Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. I guess what I 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 am a skeptic by nature. I say look at the history books. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly.

A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. Vibrant and very readable. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds!

I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. Impatience is also part of being human. What is my purpose? But at least elogii starting point should be to hohore the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too.

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? Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush.


In Praise of Slow

A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and joy to life — reading to my children, sharing a glass of wine with my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to gaze at a beautiful sunset. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. Why do we live so fast today? Forward-thinking companies all over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down.

However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts.
