Most of us have heard at one time or another in our lives, that we need to slow down to accomplish more. This is common Be Here Now, zen advice, to slow down and focus on one thing at a time. It’s great advice!
But . . .
I would like to suggest that slow and steady is always a good practice, but it means different things at different times in our creative cycles.
Those of you who love writing, have undoubtedly found times that your pace of writing varies. Often, day to day, we find ourselves moving with a different rhythm.
But when we’re looking at using writing as a tool for creating a better destiny, it helps if we give ourselves permission to have different rates of slow and steady focus, which means that we need to take some time to understand our own rhythms, and the transforming outer cycles that are working on us.
You might want to check out my post on Creative Cycles and Your Energy, which discusses what slow and steady progress means at different times in our creative cycles. When it comes to creating our destiny, we have to know that it’s normal and human to require different approaches to slowing down at different times in our lives.
This week, I’d love to hear from you.
This week’s contemplation:
When has slowing down helped you to create more goodness in your life?
