In order to perform fast you have to be slow!

Ask any major sportsman, Formula 1 driver, downhill skier or speed skater. If you want to be good at what you are doing, be able to perform the tasks fast, you would need to know how it is performed in “SlowMotion”.

For businessmen it is also important to benefit from slowness in the way that if you do not take time out for reflection and slowness (reflect on how things are in SlowMotion) you will not only be less productive but you will be hazardous to your environment. There is a reason that for example pilots, train drivers etc. have a limited number of hours they can work. It is the same in business it is just that it is more difficult to see, especially if you are in the middle of the rat race.
