The Slow Fix: Solve Problems, Work Smarter and Live Better in a Fast World by Carl Honore
What do we do when things go wrong in a fast world? Many of us go for the quick fix that delays the problem rather than solving it. To make real progress we need real solutions - we need to take time for THE SLOW FIX. People have long been in search of a quick fix. Truth is, it doesn't work. The problems facing us today are bigger and more urgent than ever before and we need to learn to start fixing things properly, rather than settling for short-term solutions. The Slow Fix offers real, life-changing solutions to tackling these problems and extends the movement defined by Carl Honore in his global bestseller, In Praise of Slow, to offer a recipe for problem-solving that can be applied to every walk of life, from business and politics to relationships, education and health reform. Taking time to build up expertise, taking advantage of the hidden benefits of teamwork, finding the right messenger to deliver the message, and employing a transparent approach are all essential elements of the Slow Fix. This book will help you make sense of what is going wrong - and right - in the world, and gives inspiration, ideas and practical tools to help fix your own life and everything around you.
