We can not force the pace to fit more things in the same period of time, and must be selected with criteria of relevance, trying to delegate or defer the rest. Even if we decrease the amount can be so fast to go with the same haste and speed of when we afanábamos, leaving holes of sudden inactivity as one eats in a citation and No food that is seen in the plane and spent the rest of the meal nervous waiting for the others run out. Slow means slow forcing our every move “walking speed,” betting wallow with perfection and polish what we have at hand (for example, writing a very good letter, select the words, phrases expand going into details and considerations, review the work or introduce small improvements creative). Feelings of emptiness there to fill them with something to help us meet this desquiciarnos not crack unbearable, attending carefully to what we observe around us right to where I am Shelock Holmes, as is the person I am, playing to create fun, entertaining and relaxed to provide enjoyment to the time you spend and spend and becomes a living.
