Don’t try on a new suit the day of the wedding

Much of life seems overcomplicated because we are always trying to force a square peg into a round hole. 

We can make incredible things happen in this world, but we have to move slowly.

How often do we try to “figure something out” the day of, or the day before, we need it to work?

Sometimes, we don’t even need it to work, but we want it to.

Consistency, and doing what we know already works, is the best method for dealing with each day.

Instead, make time for creative pursuits when there is down time. And make lots of down time in life.

The best time to read instructions for that new watch you bought? Probably at the beach when the watch is safely at home. The worst time? An hour before you wear it on that first date.

Slowness is a style, a method of life, that always needs remembering.

Also, did you really need that new suit, that new watch? Sometimes slowness is also about just leaving more room for life, less room for stuff and complications.
