If you want to hurry up, slow down.

That’s the funny thing about slowing down, giving your full attention to each task, situation, person, etc. before you.

You end up speeding up, in the sense that whatever it is you’re working on or towards, starts to go smoother, as you become better calibrated to the moment. Less mistakes (of all types) get made this way.

You feel more this way too, which is part of the reason we hurry—to avoid feeling, to avoid the moment, and to avoid connection.
