Walking. Such a simple act of movement. Yet, the more I walked the streets of New York, the more I hated walking. When I leave my apartment, I would be hurrying to get to some place. When I’m leaving some place, I’m hurrying to get home. Always, in a hurry, always trying to get somewhere. Always, wanting what is not now.
Being an entrepreneur is not much different than walking the streets of Manhattan. We are always working towards something, and the not so desired side effects of ambition and entreprepreneurship can really get in the way of peace of mind, clouding our judgement and the way we make important decisions.
So how do we slow down? How do we tackle the stresses, the frustrations and the impatience?
