By limiting working hours. However, taking the time to read In Praise of Slowness may be the best decision an entrepreneur, or anyone working full time, can make.

In Praise of Slow

Now I never feel rushed any more. At the same time, the world has become a giant buffet of things to do, consume, experience — and we rush to have it all. Take the rise of feminism.

Or by creating quiet spaces for doing yoga, massage or even take a short nap during the workday. The world is too complex and interconnected for that. Not long ago the Economist magazine told its readers: I do fewer things but I do them better and enjoy them more. I look at my sister and my grandmother and marvel at the change in just two generations.

Read it slowly to allow inward digestion without dyspepsia. Readers would be wise to savour it slowly.


Take the time to read this important, excellently written book — our future depends on the ideas it contains! Maybe reading this book could be a life-altering experience!

It allows us to reflect on the big questions: Thanks to the powerful taboo against slowness, even just thinking about slowing down makes us feel afraid, guilty or ashamed. What inspired you to embrace Slow? slogio

How has slowing down changed your life? I feel more optimistic now than I did when In Praise of Slow first came out. But if we slow down, surely life will pass us by? 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.

But at least our starting point should be to seek lntitud tempo giusto and to expect others to do so too. A rare treat to be savoured — at your own pace, lenhitud course.

When I caught myself admiring a book of one-minute bedtime stories Snow White in 60 seconds! And it seems to be working. A magazine in Britain even published an article recently on how to bring about an orgasm in 30 seconds!
