Faster! Better! More! Productivity and personal achievement are dominant cultural values in 2018, but do we have to buy in? Our panel asks you to put down your phone, put away your planner, and stop to consider the sweetness of going slow.

Lebih cepat! Lebih baik! Produktivitas dan pencapaian personal adalah nilai budaya yang dianggap penting sepanjang tahun 2018 ini, tetapi apakah kita harus benar-benar memilikinya? Panel kami meminta Anda untuk meletakkan ponsel Anda, menyingkirkan segala perencanaan yang sudah dibuat, dan berhenti untuk mempertimbangkan ilusi dari yang sering disebut dengan ‘mengikuti arus’.
