In Praise of Slow
Impatience is also part of being human. Mastering the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow. Essential reading for a happier, healthier, more productive life.

It will be a world that is healthy, happy and humane.

The good news is that the Slow movement is growing lentitue The modern workplace also pushes us to work faster and longer while technology encourages us to do everything faster and faster.
Readers would be wise to savour it slowly. I am no utopian. Now I never feel rushed any more.
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. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! But I believe it will ka.
