slowing down.

when i have some free time i love listening to ted talks... they're amazing & inspiring & fabulous ways to spend lil chunks of time.

today i listened to carl honore talk about our world & the need for speed. it's something i've thought about often... especially when i find myself losing patience with slow drivers or even with bryan. i'm not as patient as i'd like to be. we all most definitely need to slow down & carl speaks of this beautifully. especially when he talks of what made him want to start researching this topic.

please take the time to watch this 20 minute video. you'll be glad you did.

hope you take the time to celebrate something in an unusually slow manner today!

  1. Hey, Megan! If you're interested in reading more, you can borrow our book by Carl Honore "In Praise of Slowness" (we did a book club on it a while back). Also, if you like inspirational videos, have you seen Randy Pausch's Last Lecture?


    Carnegie Mellon invites professors to give a "Last Lecture", as if it was the last lecture they would ever give. In this case, it really was his last lecture, he died of pancreatic cancer last year. It's over an hour long, but will make you laugh and cry.
