Nowadays, we do everything fast. “We used to dial; now we speed dial. We used to read; now we speed read. We used to walk; now we speed walk. And of course, we used to date and now we speed date.And even things that are by their very nature slow — we try and speed them up too”. 

In this TED talk the journalist Carl Honoré, recalling his book “In praise of slowness”,  underlines how the Western world erroneously believes that to do things better you should speed them up. Instead, doing fast impairs our productivity and, above all, the quality of our life. Fortunately, according to Carl Honoré the trend is…slowly changing!
