Slow is Smooth. Smooth is Fast.

Apr 26, 2024

Hey, dearest Reader! Are you aware of the transformative power of slowing down?

Back in 2015, I launched my signature training program, the "Successful Soulopreneur System." One of the very first lessons I shared with my coaches was simple but profound:

"Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast."

It’s a powerful mantra instilled in Marine Corps Special Operations units from day one of their rigorous training. The idea is that slow, careful movements lead to faster and safer task completion, especially in high-pressure situations.

This mantra isn't just a military maxim; it can be a guiding principle for success in life and any field.

I recently came across this idea again while reading "The Prosperous Coach" with one of my clients, who is in the process of building her coaching practice.

In a chapter by Rich Litvin called “Slow down to speed up success,” he delves into the space where miracles occur—a space he created by intentionally slowing everything down.

Allow me to share a paraphrased version of the ways he slowed things down and suggests the reader do the same:

"Take your time during client conversations, creating space for new insights to emerge. Slow down your initial interactions with potential clients, diving into their lives more deeply than they've ever explored. Spend extra time preparing for meetings, getting to know your new clients' world, and crafting questions no one has ever asked them before."

In a world where everyone seems to be rushing for ‘More’ and spending less time with the task at hand or the human being right in front of them, this is a breath of fresh air.

I absolutely love it!

And I genuinely believe that when we get present in the moment and slow down to life's natural pace, everything becomes lighter, simpler, and more profoundly impactful.

What do you think? How would giving yourself permission to slow down resonate with you?

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

So much love,
