Nowadays almost everything must be fast, that is what all media preach, that is what is being inserted in the brains of people. Races of any kind, cars, horses, dogs, people, quiz shows are based on the speed of the responses, not on knowledge, a data base of very little sounding content but trickery, shallow and media gossip on celebrities, films, songs, rock groups, politicians, not useful for anything else but for quiz shows, they are made to block everyone’s minds to learn the real and meaningful culture, the commercials technique.
Meanwhile the professionals are “built” in universities under the scientific, technological and cultural-social principles, with emphasis on giving adequate responses to problems based on knowledge, study, evaluating things, taking the time to do it well, the world outside is molded by media and it asks for exactly the opposite, be fast, don’t think it for long time if not somebody else will take your place and so on.
Speed only leads to mistakes, nothing steady, durable, meaningful, be prepared, take your time, apply the old diving say we are taught to become divers: plan your dive and dive your plan, if not, abort your dive to save your life. It applies to everything in life, see, think and touch afterwards.
