Watch yourself during a typical day. Begin to identify when and why you’re rushing around and how your performance changes versus when you’re calm and collected. More than ever we need to learn the art of slowing down. Don’t buy into the myth that slowing down will make you less productive. Productivity isn’t just about speed, it’s also about efficiency.
Can your slow, calm and controlled mind do something in 10 minutes which takes your fast-moving and scrambled brain 20 minutes? It might not break down exactly like that, but you get the point. And productivity isn’t the primary reason we need to slow down, we need to slow down for our own well-being. What’s the point of productivity if we’re not happy in the process?
The myth of the pot of gold at the end of the trail of hard work is just that- a myth- and one that you shouldn’t buy into. Happiness is found in how we live our everyday lives. Take a moment to slow down and see for yourself.
Peace and Love, Jim
