I was getting a little impatient the other day. I’m trying to get my book and program into the hands of as many people as possible, and find that the daily grind of putting content ‘out there’ on the interweb takes an inordinate amount of my time.
I thought ‘There must be a quicker way – surely!’
But then I looked back on all the so called short cuts I’ve tried in life and guess what…yeah, they took longer or led me down the wrong street altogether!
In that moment of realisation a Formula 1 racetrack came to mind. I’ve driven on Brands Hatch and been tutored on ‘how’ to do the fastest lap possible. Guess what? They teach that the racing line isn’t always the shortest distance from A to B. The racing line is the fastest route, the route that you can maintain maximum speed without skidding off into the barriers.
It made me wonder where else in my life might I be looking for the shortest distance when I should actually be looking for a route that maintains maximum speed – even if it means going the long way.
I wonder if you might find it useful to consider this in your own life.
PS: My book, which encourages daily little changes, may well be the fastest route to where you want to go. Buy it here. 🙂
