The Power in Slowing Down

By Katie Corbett


I received some sage advice from a good friend this week. She said that when you are facing difficult or unusual circumstances, it is a good idea to slow down. The advice comes from military pilots. Often, new pilots want to speed up when there is turbulence to get the experience over with as soon as possible. Experienced pilots know that they need to take it slow Through that situation.


This past week, I have been slowing down a bit. I am taking a break from reading through a novel I am writing, and also taking ample time to think about and prioritize relationships in my life.


As a result, I am gaining more clarity. I also think I will be more prepared for the work ahead.


Have you taken periods of time to slow down in your life? What have been the results? Feel free to leave me a comment with any thoughts.
