13 May Speed is your friend
Planning on “just taking it slow?”
Speed is your friend.
It’s all about momentum.
Too often, speed is equated with being sloppy.
Change that mindset now. Speed is about deliberately building on momentum.
And momentum is what’s needed to attain the outcome(s) you’re focused on achieving.
If you made a call today that got you an interview – make another.
If you completed a project that got you accolades (and attention) from your boss – start another.
If you started working on your side business and got some traction (blog posted, new client, finished a chapter in your book) – knock out one more.
It’s all about outcomes. Each win builds momentum. Momentum builds speed.
So, next time you’re gut tells you to back off…try leaning in and going a little faster!

Hey, I realized as I started shooting this that I’m next to a road so it may be a little noisy, so I apologize for that. Hey, it’s Kevin again. I just finished up paddling as I shared with you something I’ve started doing that’s new for me.
I’m working on technique. Like anything when we do something new, it’s not easy. It takes us out of our comfort zone. I’m reminded of that daily and honestly it’s part of what I enjoy about this, but here’s why I put this together for you because something occurred to me.
In the last few years I’ve picked up things ever since I met my wife, snowboarding, surfing, and in each of those instances I have learned something really powerful and I think it translates to the professional side and here’s what it is: that speed is your friend.
Snowboarding, when I first started out I had this total tendency to want to slow down but the reality is the faster I was going the more I was able to pivot and work off of the energy that I already had moving in the direction I wanted to go in, and I think that’s a really important point.
The same thing is proving true out here, the same thing as I thought about it this morning as I was out there on the water, every good thing that’s happened to me professionally and I’d even say personally came from a build up of momentum and continuing to build on that momentum.
I want you to think about that.
More importantly, comment below and share with me where that’s been the case for you. I’m really interested to hear your own story of how has momentum and working off of momentum lead to bigger and better things for you. If you’re not doing that, if you’re sitting there and you’re caught in that quagmire right now of trying to decide what you do, analysis by paralysis or paralysis by analysis. I don’t know, I’m a little tired.
Just start moving. Once you get going in a direction you can pivot, you can change, you can adjust, but until you start moving you are never going to hit that target and that outcome you’re looking for. Comment below, share with me where that’s been impactful for you. I hope this has been helpful and if you’ve got any other ideas for things you’d like for me to over just share them with me. Let me know. Thanks.
