How fast?


It can feel like everyone else is going faster than you.

And maybe they are.

And your question is … is faster better?

Maybe they have more experience, better funding, greater motivation, a higher risk profile, more intelligence and sharper elbows.

Maybe they’re in a souped up car with fat wheels and a huge engine.

Maybe they’re too fast for the curve ahead. Or still too slow for the next hill.

The bigger question … why do you care about them?

They’re not you. They’re not where you are. They have different resources. Talents. Experience.

In the real world where businesses are built and teams make a difference, rarely is winning about relative speed.

It’s about getting the job done.

Skippy strategy: Stop looking at them. Get on with the work.
