Post Career: Slow is Good

I was posting on the Slow Food Movement and its incarnation in Perugia and a thought hit me. Slow in this context is not about being stupid or lazy. It is about celebrating what is good in life. And that idea has broad application.

here is the point. What is it about work that is most annoying? Most would answer stress from too much to do and the ever attendant risk of failure. BTW, the faster one works, the more likely one is to screw things up and fail. So there is an ever present precariousness about balancing productivity and quality.

What if you did not have to race around so much? What if you were free to focus more on quality? In this environment, you could live much better.

Post career as slow work. Think about it.
