If there’s one thing that’s gotten in the way of success and happiness in my life, it’s the idea that I need to finish things faster. 

The problem with being in a hurry is that we focus on being finished, instead of being engaged with what we’re doing. You can find pleasure in nearly anything when you give it your full attention. Basic tantra. This is the art of sensual living, of elevating the mundane, and finding intense pleasure and gratitude in simple things (because the quality of your attention allows you to experience an amplified version of them).

A practice: Next time you’re cleaning  your kitchen or your bathroom in a hurry, or hastily executing some task at work (something you detest), try slowing it down, and allow yourself to fully enjoy it. Be thorough, try to engage all your senses, notice the details of your experience. Imagine it is your last five minutes on earth, and this is the last task that you will ever be able to execute. How would you amplify this, make it count? Experiment, and see if you can't cause a mental shift in your awareness. 

A practice for lovers: Slow it down, try not to think about orgasm. Go deeper into the feeling of pleasure and connection instead of trying to burn through it. 

Don't forget to put some love into it.
