No. 777 / On speed

Does moving faster actually get you where you want to go quicker? Or is it just an illusion of progress?

I guess it depends on where you want to go.

If you weave in and out of cars on the freeway but get in a crash due to reckless driving, that certainly doesn’t get you to your destination quicker.

In this case (and most cases) speed is relative. There is no absolute speed for any of us. There are expectations and norms.

So it begs the question, that place you want to get to so quickly; the one you are willing to cheat, claw, and climb to get to, is it worth the shortcuts and compromises? Even so, what happens when you get there, anyway?
