4 Reasons Why Slowing Down Will Actually Make You More Successful
It sounds backwards, but slowing down is actually a faster way to succeed. Here’s why.
Go faster. Do more. Hustle. Hustle even more. Sound familiar? Social media is full of influencers, entrepreneurs, and “gurus” touting the virtues of hustling at all costs. It’s reached the point where hustling, and even just talking about hustling, appears to be more important that actually producing results.
The antidote to the “always hustling” mindset is “slowness.” It sounds crazy, but slowing down can be the difference between success or failure, or between thriving and burning out.
While more and more personal coaches and social-media influencers, qualified or not, tout the hustle lifestyle, successful leaders and entrepreneurs who actually create results in their lives know that slowing down builds the foundation for their success.
Here are two reasons why slowing down can actually help you accelerate your success, enjoy a deeper sense of fulfillment, and create the life you want.
1. You’ll have greater clarity.
What’s the point of hustling if you’re going in the wrong direction? Too many people work tirelessly down a path that won’t give them the results they want. It’s like running on a treadmill…you’re working, but you’re not going anywhere.
Slow down and make time for clarity. You can’t see where you’re going if you’re too busy running with your head down. You can’t see the shiny thing in the corner of your eye if you’re laser focused in one direction.
To remedy this, schedule an hour every week to “check in.” Reflect on your intentions and observe the challenges or opportunities showing up in front of you. Think about what’s working, what isn’t working, and where you can focus your energy next week.
2. You’ll make better decisions.
What good is hustling all the time if a single decision can undo all the work you invested?
To put it simply, your mind is like a car engine: If you always have your pedal to the floor, the engine will redline, overheat, and fail. When you slow down and make time for rest and meditation, you lower your baseline for mental stress. When your mind isn’t racing, it’s free to absorb information, assess the circumstances, and make a good decision.
If success requires making good decisions, and slowing down helps you make better decisions, then consider how you can invest more time in slowing down.
