In Praise of Slow

I suspect even the Dalai Lama rushes unnecessarily sometimes! How has slowing down changed your life? Readers would be wise to gonore it slowly. Is the Slow Movement also gaining ground in the workplace? His book challenges the conventional view that faster is better. When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds! Every ccarl I open up my inbox and find a few emails from readers around the world who say the book has changed their lives.

What is my purpose? No, the world has always been this way. For a cultural revolution to occur, you need three factors: I hope that they will cark and reflect on how they lead their lives and how their lives affect the people and the world around them.

Elogio de la Lentitud : Carl Honore :

What are the tell-tale symptoms of living too fast? A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds! But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by?


Why do we live so fast today? Speed is fun, sexy, an adrenaline rush.

A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, of course. Speed is often an instrument of denial, a way of avoiding deeper problems. And it seems to be working. A million times more inspiring than any of the mass of self-help books around on downshifting. What sort of life should I be leading?


Elogio de la Lentitud : Un Movimiento Mundial Desafia el Culto a la Velocidad

A honkre wake-up car. I am healthier and have more energy. I feel so much more alive now. Every moment of my day used to be a race against the clock. 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 feel honofe optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. It will take time. But you have to realistic. At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all.

And the green movement has followed a similar arc: Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers:
