What is my purpose?

Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and joy to life — lentitux to my children, sharing a glass of wine with my wife, chatting with a friend, pausing to gaze at a beautiful sunset.

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? I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives. Every day I open up my inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book has changed their lives. By limiting working hours. Vibrant and very readable.

How can I make the world a better place? Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? And as the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. Slow means being present, living each moment fully, putting quality before quantity in everything from work and sex to food and parenting.


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.

Elogio de la Lentitud : Carl Honore :

Forward-thinking companies lentitue over the world are looking for ways to help their staff slow down. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. And it seems to be working.

Slowing down can be varl antidote to that. I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 or 40 years ago.

Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. But I believe it will happen. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? The message is that the world can change, if we want it to.

Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. He combines fact, analysis and anecdote elegantly and compellingly. If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.

At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all.

Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow

However, taking the time to read In Praise of Ellgio may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make. 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.


Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock.

Now I never feel rushed any more. It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane. In Praise of Slowness is a gift to all of us. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. It allows us to reflect on the big questions: We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush.

What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? I am a skeptic by nature. The world is too complex and interconnected for that. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. But faster is not always better.

The boom in meditation or mindfulness in the corporate world is another sign that business is waking up to the power and wisdom of slowing down. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: I say look at the history books. Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow.
