People differ in a way of doing things in their life. Some people make everything quickly and keep themselves always busy. Others, on the contrarily, have a slow pace lives. Personally, I belong to the second people’s type because I do not have an ability to do things quickly; I like to think before making decisions and to do everything perfectly as possible.
First and foremost, I prefer to take time planning events in advance .In this way I have a proper control and feel comfortable. For instance, the arrangement of my daughter‘s birthday celebration I started two months in advance. It was really the spectacular event and all relatives speak about it till these days. However, sometimes, I am forced to do things in a hurry, thus people think that I had better did not do it. In a nutshell, to get something done demands from me a lot of time.
Second, I would rather think twice before doing instead of finding myself regretting about things that have already done. For instance, I do not buy new clothes that do not fit me hoping one day to wear it. As a result, I do not have stuff at home, only things that I need and use. Unfortunately, thinking twice causes me to miss the good discounts, because I could not decide promptly, but it saves me money in the other cases.
Third, even it sounds trivial, I am perfectionist and like to see the best outcome which consumes a time. For instance, it took me to complete my master degree more than four years instead of regular two ones. I wanted to have the better marks, so I did some exams for several time improving my score. Additionally, I spent a lot of time trying to get the better experimental results for my thesis project. In a nutshell, the slow pace allowed me to reach my goals as I wanted.
All in all, having the slow pace life gives me opportunity to do things in the perfect way, because I am able to plan in advance and think before doing. Finally, the fact that I have enough of time makes me to feel comfortable in my life.
