"As a species, we humans possess some unique capacities. We can stand apart from what's going on, think about it, question it, imagine things being different. We are also curious. We want to know "why?" We figure out "how." We think about what's past' we dream forward to the future. We create what we want rather than just accept what is. So far, we're the only species we know that does this. But as the world speeds up, we're forfeiting these wonderful human capacities...Do you equate productivity with speed? Margaret Wheatley explains how slowing down just might be the difference between ideas and action."
