慢下来

从台北回来一个星期,每天都像是战场,精神紧绷,工作忙碌,而且同时有好几件事情在进行。整个生活的方式和素质,和一个星期前在台北只做一件事,就是专心致志的写剧本,真是天壤之别。

吃饭的时候,B 说他们公司有一句 slogan: “we must slow down, so that we can move faster.” 呵呵,这个口号真应该在新加坡每一个角落张挂——简直就是政府最佳的宣导!

B 说,前一句说得好,后一句就可以免了。太对了,这句话可以改为: “we must slow down, so that we can really slow down.”

昨天傍晚,L 也告诉我,可以慢下来。是啊,能够慢下来多好,那是一种幸福。我想,我给人的印象,是速度非常快,也许,和我一起工作的人会认为我的步伐太快了,快得把周遭的人都弄得很累。我现在每天工作十几个小时,已经觉得时间不够,如果慢下来的话,只有两个可能,一个是我每天要工作30个小时(一天有30个小时吗?),一个是有些事情不要做。

是的,我该慢下来。但是,如果有些事情我没有做的话,请不要怪我。

如果少做一些事的话,也许我就可以写部落格写得勤一点,而不是隔了五天才写!读者每天 refresh 都没有看到 update, 我的心里有点过意不去呢。

do people still refresh blogs every day? I hope most people are reading blogs through RSS readers already, really does save a lot of time! :)

Maybe can also say,

"we must slow down, so that we can move faster, so that we will understand the meaning of 'slow down'."

Afterall speed is relative. There's no slow if there's no fast. Maybe you want to slow down because you feel overwhelmed by your current pace.

Yes, we must slow down, and it should not only remain as a slogan. I think to slow down does not only mean to do things slowly, but to be more patience, more embracing and accommodating.

就像穿上了那双有魔力的红舞鞋,旋转旋转旋转……可是用有限的生命去做无限多的事,恐怕博了命也无济无事吧。有些事真的必须去做吗?
