Welcome back to our slow living series here at APE.
If you’re new here, welcome!
This summer we’ve been taking a look at the art of of doing things a little slower than usual. Taking on a more realistic, reflective way of working and actually taking time to stop and smell the roses, dare I say it!
It’s easy to get caught up in ‘being busy’ and rushing around for the sake of it. Convincing ourselves that we are all the more important and that big things are getting done if we are chasing our tails!
Well, in my case, and in the case if so many of my clients, the world often has a funny way of slowing you down if you don’t take the initiate and do it for yourself.
Don’t get me wrong. Inevitably we all have to dash about sometimes, tis the way of life…but I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about those of us that have begun to equate busy with ‘successful’, or always being on the go with, I’m getting lots done!
It’s often this way of being that leads to burn out, stress and actually, always rushing around means we often don’t get to do our best work or sadly still, we don’t stop for what’s really important and forget why we’re doing it all in the first place!…and that’s exactly what we dive into today.
So without further ado, here is this week’s little instalment. Do have your pen and paper handy to jot down your ideas and as usual there is an exercise at the end…
..and don’t forget to come back for the last video next week.
Til next week!
