Reframing Slow and Fast

Yesterday I tried to convince y’all why #reframing is a useful practice to improving our mindset. Today, let’s look at an example.

“I am too slow.”

“Slow is smooth; Smooth is fast.”

Think chopping vegetables.

You start off chopping slowly. You figure out where to place your fingers. You observe how your hand moves with the knife and the celery stalk. Slowly your motions become smoother. Slowly you begin to chop faster.

Imagine doing all of the above fast right at the get go.

The same is true for soft skills.

What is “slow” in, say, listening? What is “smooth” listening?

How would you apply this?
