…by slowing down
One author I read refers to it as the cult of speed…this societal and technological obsession with getting places faster, acquiring the latest gadget as soon as it’s available, and getting more things done is less time.
Here’s the problem…
It’s a lie. You can’t multitask for very long without one task suffering. You truly don’t need the new iWhatever on the day it’s released. You simply can’t get more done in less time. It’s just not possible.
But there is an alternative…
Slowing down and focusing on what’s important. That’s the singular truth that will set you free from the obsessions dictated to us by the mass media and today’s workplace that demands more and more productivity.
Slower tools will help you become more productive…
Tools that require you to slow down, pause, consider your choices; tool such as:
- Pen and paper
- Taking frequent breaks
- Living with less
These are the tools that previous generations relied on to create the world we inhabit. This is the way to greater meaning in life and greater contribution.
Think contribution instead of productivity
Productivity is an ego-centric, colder term while contribution is softer and more people-centric. That’s what this site is about – its about using slower tools to increase your contribution…in the guise of greater productivity.
