When I take my time with my tai chi practice, as I did yesterday, it can take 40 minutes.
When I rush, because today is a busy day, it takes 12. There’s a difference between an intentional rush and an unintentional rush, though. Today was intentional: there’s stuff happening today. Other days, it’s a rush because I’m not paying attention.
There’s wisdom and knowledge in knowing what’s intentional and what isn’t.
