Most of us have two speeds.
There’s the grind, the day after day, a marathon, work work work.
And there’s the recovery, the sleep in, Netflix and chill zombie state that we compartmentalize into a day like today.
But what about sprints?
Not sprints because the boss or the client insists.
Sprints that we take on merely because they energize us and remind us of how much we can do when we get out of our own way. Sprints that build our capacity. Sprints to embolden us.
The best way to improve your marathon is to learn to sprint now and then.
Maybe you can’t sustain a sprint for a day.
But what about this afternoon? What could you learn or build or teach or contribute? What can you ship?
