Hustle is fast. Fast is cool.
Slowing down is cooler:
When we slow down, we empathise better. Fast means we don’t have the headspace to get into their headspace, resulting in relational breakdowns that need intentional repair. That’s not really fast though, is it?
When we slow down, we understand, and are understood. Fast leads to rushing our writing, creating confusion, and waiting to fix the mess on a call at a time that suits everyone. That’s not really fast though, is it?
When we slow down, we create better work. Fast leads to cut corners and suboptimal process, resulting in work we’re not proud of and risks needing us to do it over again. That’s not really fast though, is it?
How can you slow it down a bit this week?
