Take It Slow

We’ve all been impatient with things in life. In today’s world we’ve been programmed to expect immediate gratification. Sometimes fast change is exactly what we don’t need. Sometimes, it’s better to take it slow.

You’ve likely been frustrated about a situation that seems to be changing much too slowly? You wish things would just get done already. Speed isn’t always best. When you let change come slowly, it’s more likely to stick.

Consider following:

  • A sudden change in the weather
  • A sudden change in the economy
  • A sudden change in the performance of your car

In each case, sudden change is usually not a good sign. It precludes a pending problem or a disaster. Attempting to change something quickly often leads to a crash or a breakdown.

I prefer to walk rather than run. I’ve practiced running in the past, but walking is much easier on the body, the joints, muscles, and bones. Furthermore, studies show it is more beneficial than running.

Finally, when it comes to our art, it’s a good idea to take it slow. I’m the first to admit that sometimes I write and compose music as if there’s no tomorrow. But great art takes time. This new site is all part of a plan for me. I might still be pushing out new work pretty fast, but I started this site for the future, for the time when I’m ready to take it slow. I’ll get there. – dse
