The Slow Process

I love Amazon next day delivery (still haven't got same day yet) as much as the next person! But when it comes to starting from you… I enjoy the slower process! (it's far more powerful!)

Jonathan Stewart:

I've had the pleasure of working with some

Jonathan Stewart:

amazing minds in the past year.

Jonathan Stewart:

And a lot of the time we've built systems.

Jonathan Stewart:

Creating things to make their business just that little bit easier.

Jonathan Stewart:

So they're not always having to do it and repeat things over and over again.

Jonathan Stewart:

But one thing they often heard was the following.

Jonathan Stewart:

I didn't realize that it was a slower process.

Jonathan Stewart:

In today's world of rapid everything where I can hop on Amazon and order something

Jonathan Stewart:

to arrive the next day, the feeling that things come fast is an assumption

Jonathan Stewart:

that many people have me included.

Jonathan Stewart:

But something I'm realizing on my journey as an, as I work.

Jonathan Stewart:

I work with my clients is that the process is slower.

Jonathan Stewart:

It takes time to craft something that really starts from you.

Jonathan Stewart:

At the end of every episode of the season, I say we are constantly

Jonathan Stewart:

bombarded by so many things.

Jonathan Stewart:

No matter what you do, sometimes it can weigh you down.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's only through a reflective practice where you question your assumptions and

Jonathan Stewart:

the way you work, it can really reveal.

Jonathan Stewart:

What's true for you.

Jonathan Stewart:

The thing is I've rarely seen these conversations happen in the

Jonathan Stewart:

business world because it's not sexy.

Jonathan Stewart:

To.

Jonathan Stewart:

So from, I can't push on pain points to make you buy things.

Jonathan Stewart:

And I wouldn't really want to.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's the slow road.

Jonathan Stewart:

Now the slow road doesn't mean there isn't a feeling of progress because

Jonathan Stewart:

there are so many things that could be solved incredibly simply once

Jonathan Stewart:

you understand the way you work.

Jonathan Stewart:

The bit, I love about my work.

Jonathan Stewart:

Isn't really the tech it's about what it does for my clients.

Jonathan Stewart:

The fact that when they're finished with me, it's not just a quick

Jonathan Stewart:

fix that they'll need to come back in six to eight months time.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's something that's still working.

Jonathan Stewart:

Even now.

Jonathan Stewart:

Hi client.

Jonathan Stewart:

I worked with nearly three, almost four years ago now.

Jonathan Stewart:

And they're still using a slight adoption of the system.

Jonathan Stewart:

I designed for them.

Jonathan Stewart:

Because when you follow the slow road, the progress, isn't something

Jonathan Stewart:

that's built upon shaky ground.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's built from a foundation of them.

Jonathan Stewart:

Which is the one constant that exists in your system?

Jonathan Stewart:

No matter what happens.

Jonathan Stewart:

And they're able to evolve the system they naturally use, and it can shift

Jonathan Stewart:

and adapt with them as they know.

Jonathan Stewart:

What they want.

Jonathan Stewart:

Sometimes going fast feels good, but often it skips the human at the center.

Jonathan Stewart:

You.

Jonathan Stewart:

By starting from you, no matter what happens, you'll

Jonathan Stewart:

have an idea of what you want.

Jonathan Stewart:

Have and can do.

Jonathan Stewart:

Don't want to go in alone reach out to me at simplicity dash
