Slow down and take a step back or life will fly past you

Beautiful Video

Speechless..such a beautiful video. I cried during the story and I was so moved by the lesson at the end.

Try it!

I watched this video last Sunday and I worked on this for a full week. Diring important moments I took in everything and focused only on that moment or that task. I gotta tell you, amazing things happened! I was 10x more successful at what I was doing, i was more attentive to my wife and kids, and more sensitive and caring towards those around me! The advice may seem simple but it is profound and has the potential to actually impact your life in bigger ways you may think!
Fellow readers- I urge you to try it and spread the message!

At least one pure deed each day

Hashem wants us to take time each and every day and determine how we can benefit someone else. Thank you Rabbi YC for this wonderful reminder and to do at least one pure deed each day.

so true, better to do things slowly and correctly. It takes self discipline, but that's growth

Attah = 'you' and Attah = 'now'

A great message - perhaps just to add that Attah with and 'Ayin' = now and Attah with an 'Alef' = you. Perhaps to hint exactly this lesson, that we are what we are NOW!

slow down indeed!

This reminds me of the old story of the young businessman driving down Wall Street in his new Porsche. He pulled over and opened his door to get out. Suddenly a truck sped by, ripping the door clean off the car. The man jumped out and started yelling, "my Porsche, my Porsche!" and pointing at his damaged car.
A cop walked over, shaking his head: "You young guys these days are so materialistic. All you can think about is your fancy car. You haven't even noticed that your left arm was ripped off in the accident!"
At this the young businessman looked down at the bloody mess where his left arm used to be and started screaming anew: "My Rolex! My Rolex!"

As a young executive myself (like the man in the story), this is my greatest challenge. Im constantly racing through my life. I need to watch this video every single day. Thank you!!
