My story

For the first part of my career I recognized two speeds at work: 1) Go and 2) Stop. Stop only came as a forcing function after I just couldn’t go any longer. I waited until my gas tank hit empty and was forced to rest rather than take proactive steps as it was getting low.

It wasn’t until a few years ago that a new approach to the speeds of work solidified in my mind. And the realization actually came outside of work during two bike rides.
