No mat­ter how slow or fast we live, time still needs time, and de­signer Gabby Lichauco un­der­stands this. As he el­e­vates Filipino artistry, he also eval­u­ates the de­sign in­dus­try. “[Filipinos] are start­ing to ap­pre­ci­ate the value of good de­sign com­pared to 10, five years ago,” he says.

Like Lichauco who seems to turn to his work as a break from life, he knows that things take time and re­quire pa­tience. In be­tween the hours of the day, we hope this is­sue drives you to pur­sue less, to fo­cus on what is im­por­tant and what is your pas­sion be­cause giv­ing your all to some­thing you value is bet­ter than do­ing ev­ery­thing half-heart­edly. With our present work at hand, some­times we feel that there isn’t re­ally that much time to do noth­ing. Our daily tasks take up many hours of the day that some­times we for­get that there are pre­cious min­utes, though lit­tle, we can ded­i­cate to re­claim­ing those lost hours.

We ad­vise you to keep a jour­nal so you can keep track where most of your hours are spent on. Our in­tern Car­los Tabunda writes that a sim­ple cat­a­logu­ing of events has its health and lifestyle ben­e­fits—it also shows you what you need to do less of. In turn, you may re­al­ize that “[you’ve] likely ex­hausted the charm of liv­ing fast,” as ed­i­to­rial as­sis­tant Pris­tine L. De Leon muses.
