Speed helps medicate us and distract us from reality

Speed helps medicate us and distract us from reality.

Beauty isn’t seen in a rush.

Clarity isn’t revealed in a hurry.

Change isn’t lasting as we constantly sprint.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Yet we often need to push the pedal to the metal to get “everything” done.

Maybe we aren’t proficient at shedding certain things we do – things that others could, should, and need to be doing?

And finally, what are we doing that doesn’t need to be done at all?

To delegate (hire others) things we used to do ourselves – yardwork, auto maintenance, basic home repairs, etc.

To stop doing things we’ve always done – mindlessly watching TV late in the evening, hitting the snooze button, buying (and collecting) books we’ll never read, etc.
