No Need To Rush

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life.
– Viggo Mortensen

ImageWe live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day. Sometimes it may indeed feel like that. I have uttered the phrase myself.
As usual, it’s all in our minds.
There will always be things that need attention, some of them urgently. The more you can’t stop thinking about ‘the list’, the more time seems to shrink. You wake up thinking about it, you shower and eat breakfast thinking about it, losing those precious couple of hours before the true ‘action’ of the day begins. Once you start working on doing what needs to be done you already feel burned out and exhausted – because you have actually been working for several hours in your head, making no real progress.
It’s such a good idea to meditate on a daily basis, as it helps us avoid this syndrome of ‘not being able to get things done fast enough’. Schedule a time for meditation each day, the same way you would schedule a doctor’s appointment or a meeting with friends. If for some reason you’re not a fan of meditation (that’s a whole other topic *smile*), try yoga or even a peaceful, short walk. The rhythm of your movements will remind you that there is a pace and time for everything.
You will come to realize that if you do everything calmly and mindfully, you will get things done quickly and with considerably less stress.
Do you rush everyday, all day? What effect has this approach had on your outlook of life? Do you make it a point to slow down and take things one at a time? I’d love to hear from you at
