Modern science and bio-hacking are now helping us live longer than ever before. Ageing is not what it used to be! BUT our mindset to ageing is just as critical as the food we eat and the exercise programs we sign up for.
Recorded live on the main stage at Upgrade Your Life 2020, Carl Honore takes a deep dive into how we make the most of our longer lives and keep reinventing ourselves. It shatters the myths about ageing, in an era where the threat of becoming irrelevant is greater than ever…. at ANY age!

How to thrive in a fast world by slowing down

Do you feel that the world is moving too fast? Do you worry that the busyness of modern life is detracting from connection in families? Are you your child’s entertainment director or project manager, micro-managing your child’s life? Has parenting become a cross between a competitive sport and product development for you? Do you sometimes feel burnt out, overwhelmed, dissatisfied and worried about your child’s future?

Listen to this episode with Carl Honoré if you want to learn:

  • How we are enthralled to the cult of speed. But there is a more mindful revolution going on.
  • How busyness has become a badge of honour –if you’re not busy you’re not important. But busyness can be a way of running away from some very important questions like ‘Who am I?’, ‘What is my purpose?’, ‘Am I living the right life?’ Those questions require physical and cognitive space.
  • How to do slow. Because racing through your life is not really living it.
  • Awareness of beliefs that affect our choices such as that there are winners and losers in the game of life and our children need to get the edge on others to succeed; that there is only one path to success and if we deviate from the path our children will be ruined for life.
  • How to transform your family life through a detox experience which will give you greater connection with each other and renewed vigour.
  • About the 4 slow parenting commandments:
  • For journeys of less than 2 miles ditch the car and walk and talk with your children
  • Children drop all Extra Curricular Activities bar one.
  • Families eat at least one meal together each day
  • Parents have a relaxing ritual each day

Carl talks about how there is increased awareness in schools of children’s happiness but there still much panic amongst parents about getting children ready for the workplace. At TPP we are very aware of this and so created our workshop series Maximising Your Child’s Potential at School to help parents develop the ‘soft’ skills they’ll need to succeed, the ones which are not on the curriculum. Carl also identifies social media as adding considerably to the pressure to be perfect that both children and adults experience. Learn how to manage a child’s use of social media in our workshop Parenting in a Digital World.

In our celebration of vulnerability and perfect imperfection Carl shares with us a Low Parenting Moment of his own.

And his top tip for raising children to be confident, happy and successful.

Ep.8: Slow Life Down with the God Father of the Slow Movement Carl Honore

Read more

  I had the pleasure to interview Carl Honore. Carl has been known as:

"The global guru on the Slow Movement."

- Globe and Mail

"An in-demand spokesman on slowness."

The Wall Street Journal

"The godfather of the Slow Movement."


In addition, he’s just a really awesome human being. 

Carl Honoré is an award-winning writer, broadcaster and TED speaker. As the voice of the Slow Movement, he travels the world to teach people how to thrive in a fast world – by slowing down.

Carl has been featured in a series for BBC Radio 4 called The Slow Coach in which he helped frazzled, over-scheduled Britons slow down. He presented a TV show (ABC 1) called Frantic Family Rescue where he did the same for families in Australia. His TED talk on the benefits of slowing down has been viewed 2.8 million times.

Before spearheading the Slow Movement, Carl spent a decade working as a journalist. He covered Europe and South America for the Economist, Observer, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, Time, National Post and other publications.

His first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. The Financial Times said it is “to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.”

Carl has written 4 books so far and has presented two Ted talks. 

His first book, In Praise of Slow, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. The Financial Times said it is “to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.”

His second book, Under Pressure, explores the good, the bad and the ugly of modern childrearing – and offers a blueprint for change. It was hailed by Time as a “gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.”

Carl’s third book, The Slow Fix, explores how to tackle complex problems in every walk of life, from health and relationships to business and politics, without falling for superficial, short-term quick fixes.

Carl’s latest book, Bolder: Making The Most Of Our Longer Lives, is about ageing – how we can do it better and feel better about doing it. It’s also a rallying cry against the last form of discrimination that dare speak its name: ageism.

Connect with Carl, read his books, watch his Ted talks and follow his journey at

And most importantly, remember to Slow Down.

How To Overcome FOMO: The Fear of Missing Out with Carl Honore

Read more
In this episode we discuss how to beat FOMO - the Fear of Missing Out. How do you overcome the emotional barriers and fears of missing out and saying no to things? How do you get over the awful feeling of turning down opportunities? We share simple actionable strategies for you to say yes to yourself and for you to say yes to what’s really important and actually matters in your life. We share a great strategy you can use to make a huge difference in your life in two minutes or less and we dig into the important concept that in a world drunk on speed, slowness is a superpower - all that much more with our guest Carl Honore. Carl Honore is a bestselling author, broadcaster and the creator of the Slow Movement. His TED talk on the benefits of slowing down has been viewed 2.6 million times. Carl has spoken all over the world to audiences ranging from business leaders and entrepreneurs to teachers, academics and medical practitioners. He is the author of In Praise of Slow, Under Pressure, The Slow Fix, and most recently Bolder. His books have been translated into 35 languages and been on the bestseller’s list of as many countries.The world is speeding up and speeding up - how do we deal with the constantly accelerating pace of change and the rush for speed?“Forget frantic acceleration, mastering the clock of business means choosing when to be fast, and when to be slow."Do you suffer from FOMO? Are you like a hamster on a wheel trying to do, learn, experience and achieve as much as possible as quickly as possible? By becoming a hamster on a wheel you end up missing EVERYTHING and getting NOTHING and skimming the surface of life. “The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything.” - Warren Buffet "You can have anything you want but you can’t have everything” - Ray Dalio How do you get over the emotional barriers and fears of missing out and saying no to things?Take one thing off your to-do list each day and put that item on your “not to do” listBy saying NO, you say YES to something much more important - your really important priorities and goals The most creative minds, the people who’ve gotten the most done throughout history are the people who understand the power of MOMENTS OF QUIET. You will be more engaged, more switched on, more effective when you are in fast mode when you take the time to have moments of quiet. Sometimes you can get things done more quickly when you slow down.Multi-tasking is nonsense, the human mind cannot multitask. A “fast” multi-tasker will take twice as long and make twice as many mistakes as a slow “mono tasker"When you move too fast everything becomes a blur and nothing remains with you. It harms your memory. There’s an intimate bond between memory and slowness. There is no such thing as a quick fix. Slow fixes actually work. When a quick fix blows up later on, sometimes we're forced to spend the time and money to get it right the second time. Invest that time and money now on a real solution.What does it mean to be aging in a world that is obsessed with youth?We are in the “golden age of aging” - there’s never been a better time in human history to be agingHomework: Do less. Look at your todo list and start cutting things out of it. Drop one thing a day and let more oxygen into your schedule. Homework: Create time where you aren’t reachable and can unplug from gadgets. Turn your smartphone into a tool instead of a weapon of mass distraction. Homework: Integrate some kind of slow practice into your day. Meditate, cook, go for a walk. Anything that can inoculate you against the virus of hurry.

From Page to Stage…Getting Bolder with Carl Honore - 068

Read more

Carl Honore started out his career as a journalist driven by a personal mission to change the world for the better. One day he realized that in his pursuit of making other people’s lives better his own was passing by at breakneck speed and he was missing the important moments.

This epiphany set him on the path to writing his best-selling book ‘In Praise of Slow’ and spear heading the ‘slow’ movement which has impacted lives all over the world. It also meant that he had to face the terror he felt about public speaking and make the transition from ‘page to stage’. A few best sellers on and he is now an international speaker with a new book, ‘Bolder’ just out that deals with another fear of his…aging.

In this show Carl shares some gems on the benefits of living more ‘slowly’, on how we should view aging, and gives a look behind the curtain at how he is putting his brand-new keynote together for Bolder.

I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

What we talk about:

  • The 60 second Snow White book and how it changed Carl’s life.
  • Why faster is not always better.
  • How we need to marry the speed of today’s culture with the older, slower truths of what it means to be human
  • Why the world cannot sustain the turbo culture of today.
  • Why there is no such thing as a lost ‘slow’ cause.
  • The top five benefits of slowing down.
  • The story behind ‘Bolder’ and societies hang ups with age.
  • The irony between age and wisdom being qualities looked for in running nations but not teams in business and why companies are missing out.
  • The upside to aging and how we can age better.
  • Carl’s transition from being terrified of public speaking to becoming an international public speaker.
  • How perfectionism can rob you of fulfilling your potential as a public speaker.
  • The process Carl goes through to prepare his talks.
  • Why rehearsal is so critical to sounding ‘natural’ as a speaker.
  • Why stories are crucial to speaking success and your origin story in particular.
  • A journalist’s view on ‘fake news’.
