Carl Honoré, author of a book called In Praise of Slowness: Challenging the Cult of Speed.
Carl’s book came to me at the perfect time in my life. He was interested to explore and answer two questions. Number one – how did we get so fast, and two – is it possible or even desirable to slow down? Carl is an award winning writer, broadcaster, and TEDTalk speaker. He’s considered the voice of the global slow movement and talks about how to thrive in a fast world by slowing down. His TED talk on this same subject has been viewed more than 3 million times.
In his TED talk, he talks about bad slow versus good slow. The idea of time sickness and time exits, how we can get more out of time, slow time down. He talks about our tendency to race through life instead of truly living it.He spent a decade working as a journalist before really diving in to this slow movement thing.
