The Slow Time

Several times a week, I intentionally slow things down. Right now, for instance, I am typing very slowly and am slowly considering what I need to do to be ready for tomorrow. My schedule will be slowly written and later, when I read a book, that too will be done slowly. With that I can notice the author's pace as well as the choice of some words versus others.

Could I get more done if I didn't have these slow times? I'm sure I could but not in all cases. Slow execution of tasks helps to prevent mistakes. It permits you to savor the work. I overlook less when I slow things down.

[I wrote the above last night. I'm ready for the day and rather than making the slow times the exception, I'll make them the rule. Let speed be the exception.]
