Elogio de la lentitud – Carl Honoré – Google Books
How has slowing down changed your life? It allows us to flogio on the big questions: There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.
I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations. Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast?
Go back to the kitchen! Now I never feel rushed any more. The message ohnore that the world can change, if we want it to.
And the green movement has followed a similar arc: Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life. It is the unofficial handbook and bible of the Slow Movement. 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. At work, I am much more productive and creative. But faster is not always better. What sort of life should I be leading?
We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. Slowing down can be the antidote to that. A personal wake-up call. What will a Slow world look like? Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives. What is my purpose?
A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!
Carl Honore | In Praise of Slow
I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. 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.
I am a skeptic by nature. But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. 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. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds! How can I make the world a better place?
What do you hope readers will take away from In Praise of Slow? Add to that the fear of being alone with our thoughts. If you are always rushing, you only skim the surface of things.
Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course.
The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster. No, the world has always been this way. Why do we live so fast today?
And ce the world gets faster, the need for a counter-current of slowness will grow too. I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! And it seems to be working.
In Praise of Slow
Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? All Londoners should read it. I am no utopian. I am healthier and have more energy. His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed.
I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out.
Vibrant and very readable. Take the rise of feminism.
