"You usually have to slow down to spot, understand and manage the details."
"In every walk of life, more and more of us are starting to accept that when tackling hard problems faster is not always better, that the best solutions take flight when we invest enough time, effort and resources. When we slow down, in other words."
"How many figures have ever won power by declaring 'It will take me a long time to work out how to solve our problems?' Slowing down to reflect, analyze or consult can seem indulgent or weak, especially in moments of crisis."
" 'Although moderate levels of time pressure don’t harm creativity, extreme time pressure can stifle creativity because people can’t deeply engage with the problem,' says Amabile. 'Creativity usually requires an incubation period; people need time to soak in a problem and let the ideas bubble up.' "
"When we are calm, unhurried and free from stress and distractions, the brain slips into a richer, more nuanced mode of thought. Some call this Slow Thinking, and the best minds have always understood its power."
