How You Can Slow Down to Speed Up

As we wrap up another year, most people start thinking about their goals: the ones they reached, the ones that got away, and the ones they hope to achieve next year.

One of the biggest problems with goals is that you want them NOW!

No wait, change that. You wanted results YESTERDAY!

We’re an impatient bunch. Really, who wants to wait around to get what you want?

I realize this will sound kind of funny, but no matter what you’re working towards, the best advice I can give you is to slow down to speed up.


People who take their time and embrace the idea of  “baby steps” (or little edits) are able to keep what they’ve worked hard to achieve instead of failing over and over again.

Consider those people who lose weight quickly and then gain it all back—and more!—just as fast.

How about people who rearrange every aspect of their routines (“I’ll start work at dawn! I’ll clean the entire house! I’ll never watch TV again!”), only to slide back into their comfy habits a week later when they burn out.

I’ve seen many entrepreneurs expect to become overnight sensations and are devastated when they don’t break 6-figures within the first month.

Sound familiar? But that doesn’t have to be you in 2015!

Quite often, the best things in life take time to achieve.

And anything worth having is worth working towards…even if it takes longer than you want it to take.

Isn’t it about time you take a step back so that you can take a big leap forward?

The Life Editing for Beginners Home Study Course is a self-paced program to help you delete bad influences, add good habits and routines, and rearrange the parts of your life into a perfect flow. You’ll learn the Life Editing Process and how to live your authentic life story.

The course also helps you make small doable edits that will lead you closer to your ginormous goals every day.

Your life is not a race, and you CAN succeed where you might have failed before.

Right now, the Life Editing for Beginners Home Study Course is on sale for only $47 through January 4, 2015. This is the beta price, and then it will be raised to $97.

Why am I raising the price? Simply put, I’m adding more value to the course! YAY!

For the past few months, our private LEFB Facebook group has been participating in exclusive interactive webinars to take their life editing to the next level.

I’m touched and truly impressed with the amount of support and camaraderie these ladies have shown one another.

Every month the LEFB tribe is treated to a new training about one of the steps of the Life Editing Process. You can talk directly to me and get answers for your specific questions and situation.

Past webinars include Everyday Gratitude and the December Delete Challenge. Up next in January is Add Good Habits That Stick (perfect for new year’s resolutions!). The webinar recordings are available afterwards so you can watch them at your convenience.

This is your last chance to get the entire course at the beta price of only $47.

“Now I practice moments of daily gratitude. I never want to go back to that miserable state of exhaustion where I was. I feel recharged and full of energy!” Inese Maria (Bernsone),

    Great advice! I especially need a reminder this time of year. For some reason the start of a new year really gets me thinking about all I want to accomplish and I tend to get totally overwhelmed. I definitely need to remember this. Also, “slow and steady wins the race” come to mind! 🙂

    Hi Sage, Thanks for your post and the fun pictures.

    I share your philosophy and I say the same thing, particularly when the individuals or groups I work with hit a point of frustration. I also have to remind myself every once in a while 🙂

    Starting slow to go fast is important whether it’s in the actions that we take or the planning that we do.

    Taking the time to write things down, break them into more manageable pieces, and create more milestones that indicate we are taking action contribute to shifting our mindset. Slowly we start seeing that we can accomplish more than we let ourselves believe, let go of self-limiting thoughts, and start inspiring ourselves to more action.

    Happy holidays!
