This month Lunchbox Theory has a mixtape taking you on another trip, but this time DJ Underdog is going to slow it down a little, so you can speed it back up when you get to the dance floor….
• SLOW DOWN (verb)
The verb SLOW DOWN has 5 senses:
1. lose velocity; move more slowly
2. become slow or slower
3. cause to proceed more slowly
4. reduce the speed of
5. become less tense, rest, or take one’s ease
Before we get to that, a gut check is in order. Slowdown Anywhere means a slowdown everywhere. A period of slow economic growth, especially one that follows a period of robust growth. Unlike a recession, economic growth during a slowdown is not necessarily negative.
The beauty of the slowing down is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.
