Take it nice and slow.

November 27th, 2007

One of the great advantages of subtracting to focus on what really matters is that you can afford to take things slow — to do them right the first time, and to do them without stress.

In this vein — and thanks to Kevin Kelly — I came across this Metafilter discussion of all things Slow. Worth contemplating.

    I’m all for a Slow Life, but I have to listen to others who think this is a version of class warfare. The Slow Life is expensive. Sometimes we can have Fast Food or No Food, but not Slow Food. The same with Fast Homes or No Homes, but everyone can’t afford a Slow Home. You have to Slow Down where you can, but realize we wouldn’t have a Fast Life if people didn’t need/want one.
