Take the rise of feminism. 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, elogip anyone working full time, can make. Such questions can be uncomfortable but confronting them ultimately brings greater depth to our lives.
What is the main obstacle to slowing down in this fast world? I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! There is so much food for thought here that I cannot recommend this book enough.
But faster is not always better. I also have time for those little moments that bring meaning and joy to life — lentittud 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.
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.
Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. We now have all three factors in place for the Slow revolution to push on. I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. Slowing down can be the antidote to that.
In Praise of Slow
Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience! What inspired you to embrace Slow? I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out.

A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! I think the Slow movement is at the same point as feminism or green-ism was 30 eoogio 40 years ago.
But at least our starting point should be to seek the tempo giusto and to expect others to do so honof. 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?

But I believe it will happen. Being Slow means doing everything at the correct speed: Instead of facing up to what is going wrong in our lives, we distract ourselves with speed and busyness. In the 60s, when feminists said the world was unjust and the moment for change had come, the mainstream reaction was: 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.
What sort of life should I be leading? I am no utopian. Vibrant and very readable. What will a Slow world look like? A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting.
Has our obsession with speed has gone to far? I am a skeptic by nature. No, the world has always been this way.
Essential reading re a happier, healthier, more productive life. 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.
Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday.
A personal wake-up call. What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? The world is too complex and interconnected for that.
