Everyone is in a hurry these days, they never get time to stop for a minute and observe. The reason for this is everyone is now minding their own business. However, people do not realize that not being in a hurry actually brings more good than bad. It is a way you can get to really understand what is happening around you, people who need help, those who even need to be said hi to and so forth. Below are some of the best things that happen when people begin to slow down a little;
1. You get to be kind to everybody
There are so many occasions where people are rude especially when they are late for something. All they see are barriers on their path, and to knock them out, they opt to be rude justifying their impatience. However, when you are early somewhere, you get time to say hi to people, have a chat with some and in the end, leave while everyone is happy.
2. You get to help more people
The people you meet everywhere are not all okay. Most are going through enormous challenges in their life and you could be their guardian angel if you are not in a hurry. It could be someone at the airport got loads of luggage and are hoping somebody could lend them a hand. This small act of kindness leaves a huge form of happiness in their heart and will be adamant in passing the same service to others.
3. You get to listen better
There are so many instances where people forget valuable items and documents just because they were in a hurry and had no time to listen. Better listening helps you solve situations in the best way, judge something accordingly and make sound decisions. In this regard, it good not to always be in a hurry lest you compromise other stakes.
4. You get to understand others better
Understanding is reached when you are able to listen more and contemplate on a situation. People do not get to empathize with others because they did not have the time to listen to their opinions and not rush into making biased decisions. So, if you have been struggling with understanding another individual, it could mean that you are always in a hurry. Thus you do not get the time to listen and analyze what they are saying.
5. You get to say the right words to people
Words are strong and whatever has come out of you mouth can never be taken back. People who are in a hurry have no time to digest what they are about to say and that is why they always find themselves saying the wrong words. However, for one who is calm and not in a hurry, things are much easier. They can easily gauge a situation and know what fits the occasion, thus evading from hurting people with their words.
