If you’re lost, go faster

Going faster increases the chances that you’ll find a landmark and become unlost.

This rule has a corollary though: If you’re going the wrong direction, turn around.

[And one clarification: sometimes going faster looks a lot like going slower in the short run. Because taking the time to read a map, get your bearings and understand the system you’re in ultimately gets you there more quickly.]


PS on the topic of turning around (or going faster), we’re now accepting applications for the next session of the altMBA. Today’s the last day for First Priority applications for our January session. 75 countries, thousands of alumni, people who care, making a difference and leveling up. Please consider joining us.

I’ll be answering your questions live today, Tuesday at 11 am ET on Facebook and Instagram.
