Speed matters more than you think

Last updated: 2021-05-12

Going fast has unappreciated benefits.

  • Speed gets you where you want quicker (obvious).
  • Speed not only allows you to complete the same activities faster, but also unlocks completely new activities. For example, faster typing unlocks the ability to take a transcript rather than bullet point notes.
  • Speed increases learning by passing through more feedback loops.
  • Speed shorterns backlogs. When you do things quicker, you avoid the overhead that comes from having to postpone tasks until later. You can simply do them now.
