Do you operate at 90 mph, 60 or 10? Every one of us has an internal speed at which we operate “in the zone”. Too fast and you’ll burn out, too slow and you’ll be bored. One of the keys to optimum performance is to know your velocity and stay in your zone.

  • If you are a 90 mph parent with a 10 mph teenager, you are going to need to learn patience or get an ulcer.
  • Hire people with a velocity appropriate to the position. A sales person will probably have a higher velocity than an electrician.
  • Your velocity may change as you grow older. Maybe I’m getting more mellow (not “mature”), but I’m slowing down. All the way from 90 to 75!

What’s your velocity?
