"Slowly is the fastest way to get to where you want to be," actor and director André De Shields once said in a Tony Award acceptance speech.
"Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast," say the US Navy SEALS.
In today's hyper-connected and fast-paced world, it can seem counterproductive to slow down.
But when you slow down, you conserve your energy for when it really matters.
When you slow down, you reflect and see how things connect.
When you slow down, you experience the richness of the moment as it happens, instead of letting life pass you by.
When you slow down, you let your conscious mind take a backseat to your powerful subconscious, the source of intuition and creativity.
And when you slow down, you let unseen forces work.
Forces that may not bring you what you want, but will bring you exactly what you need.
