Slow down just enough

We know that the nature of the journey is that over time we get better at what we are doing and as a result, we speed up, we keep moving and we stay focused on our goal. It is rather satisfying, and we get better and better at it. And as we do this we start to miss some of the things around us, the people who need help, the beauty of our surroundings, even the cracks in the sidewalk.  So maybe what we need to do is to slow down just enough to be able to observe, engage and contribute.  If indeed we slow down a bit we could make sure that we can go along with others on the journey, it would give us time to learn, and to observe and do whatever it is that we so choose.  Next time we go fast, this time we slow down so it is just right.
