In praise of slowness (video)

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Is it possible to make being uncomfortable your comfort zone?

 

The truth hurts and the truth can set you free.

How often do you drive the speed limit?

Seriously.

How often?

This question is really asking, “How often do you break the law?”

This TED Talk is much deeper and highly recommended.

But alas, you’re too busy.

Hurry on your way, i get it (and eventually, speed gets us).

You miss a lot when you’re in a hurry

World time zones
Time is the same around the world. Time has no accent.

 

You miss a lot when you’re in a hurry.

Like what?

Life.

And like time to rethink, reprioritize, and recommit.

Right now, this very moment, what grade do you give yourself for having your habits and rituals mirror the way you believe is your healthiest?

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Mid Life Crisis?

Mid Life Crisis?  Mid Life Celebration?

Two choices.  Maybe there are more, but it only seems like two that are obvious.

So if you had a choice, which would you pick?

No brainer, eh?

Yep, no brainer.  Then why are so many unhappy?

Because life is hard.  Sometimes, it even feels impossible.

Balance (yeah right)

Take Your Time, But Hurry Up

“You no longer spend your life hurrying around the corner for something which is never there”.Rex Harrison

If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times.  There is no guarantee in life, except that we will die.

There seems to be a delicate balance between hurrying and not hurrying. We shouldn’t rush blindly through life, bypassing life’s simple pleasures.

But then again, we can’t spend too much time doing what pleases us, because in the end, there really is much work to be done.  Our: mind, body, spirit, money, community, job, sleep, errands, chores, etc.

If we take our cue from nature, animals are constantly trying to survive. There is always the threat of danger lurking somewhere.  In nature the saying goes, “Survival of the fittest”. I’m not talking physically, I’m talking comprehensively.

Ya with me, comprehensively.  This means your day will be really busy. Or not.
