It’s not Speed, it’s Strength

4 04 2010

A new article I thought of.

With a name like this you’d expect this article to be about athlete performance. No. It’s about office work, or just work overall. I want to clarify the concept of strength.

Have you ever been motivated to do something, and suddenly had that fire inside? You just went mad and decided “I want to do this now? I wanna go crazy?”. Many people think that concept is speed. You are sped up. Your heart races. When someone suddenly gets that drive and they get more done in the same amount of time, you assume all that motivation, all that drive they had gave them more speed.

It’s not more speed. It’s more strength.

Many people think this concept is speed. This is, they get motivated, they start working twice as fast, but they end up in a spree of badly done work. They sprint through a task and didn’t do anything right. But they don’t understand why. The other person got motivated, he just got that fire and did everything faster and better. How come they tried it, and did it faster, but worse?

The secret is, that person didn’t do it faster. He did it stronger.

When you get motivation to do a task, and you have that extra energy, that extra drive, to the outside it might appear as if you have more speed. Not the case. You actually have more strength. More power. You are just as paused and relaxed as before. That driving force didn’t increase your speed. It just made you stronger at the same speed.

So next time you become motivated, have that fire inside, remember that. Don’t try to be faster. Try to be stronger at the same speed. That is the way you’ll do things right.

This is something that comes from experience in life. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t force trying to understand it. Either it happens naturally or it doesn’t.

So, apply this concept now. The next time you motivate yourself, that you have that driving force, remember. Don’t be faster. Be stronger at the same speed.
