Tuesday's Tackling Tasks: Average Speed vs. Maximum Speed

Tuesday's Tackling Tasks
What I’ve Created For You This Week: The Art and Science of Note-Taking
Hi friends,
I came across an article by James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits, this week. The general idea of the essay is that our “average speed” is more important than our “maximum speed” in most areas of life. For example, if we have only a few intense workouts in a month (maximum speed), then it doesn’t really do much for us. However, what makes a real difference is constantly showing up and putting some work in (average speed).
This applies to working on a skill or even studying. We can be tempted to glamorize maximum speed, such as pulling all-nighters. Nonetheless, we would be much more efficient and effective if we focused on our average speed, or doing a little bit consistently rather than a large amount sporadically.
This is something all of us intuitively know. Thinking in terms of average speed vs. maximum speed rather than the blanket term of “consistency” might be more helpful when it comes to getting out of bed in the morning, going to the gym more often, or even preparing for exams. I hope this helps you too!
Have a great week!
