newbie aurdino IDE 1.8.13 Mac Catalina is painfully slow

I wonder if maybe something is not installed correctly? I just bought a new mac with 39GB of ram however my Arduino nano 33 BLE project takes forever to compile and install. My sketch is not even 100 lines. It seems like it compiles a bunch of library code every time I try to upload the sketch.

Most c/c++ development environments use something like make to manage dependencies so that only files that have changed compile

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I thinking about switching micro controls because my build is so slow

Kind regards
