How Slow Growth Helps You Progress Fast

How Slow Growth Helps You Progress Fast

The very act of our inception was a race! Since then, we have just been running through life, chasing our next destination, the next goal, and the next milestone. We believe that society has set markers for our life, where if you’re 25 and not in a dream job, you are a failure.

Is there a need to rush through life to meet the so-called standards the faceless people have set for us? Or can we choose to pick our pace and match our standards and expectations to live a fuller life? 

In this episode of Take APause, Varun talks about why he chose the slow-growth life and how that change has affected his quality of life.
