In my view, “Faster” is what you decide it will be, based upon how you'll allow the speed of life to affect you. At the root of getting Faster is the Technology Boom – driven by the Information Age and vice versa. The device I'm using to write this article -- my trusty “iPad Air” -- didn't even exist just a few short years ago. Its magical capabilities, when connected to mysterious Wi-Fi, enable faster communication than ever before. Technology is an enabling force! Having said that, e-mail isn't necessarily the “next best thing”.
Another aspect of Faster is the ever-increasing flow of requests and demands on your time, plus the energy that business requires today in order to keep pace, and get ahead. You've got to be nimble and learn how to respond swiftly, or you'll be left behind. Ideally, you'll respond before the reacting to circumstances; if you wait, you'll suddenly find yourself playing catch-up.
Put into perspective, some things we might agree should go even Faster:
- Internet & Computers
- Race cars
- Election Season
- Building personal relationships
- Cooking Mouth-watering Bar-B-Cue
- Raising Children
- Creating Art
- Determining Your Legacy
Whatever you decide to do, always…….Enjoy the Journey!
