Whether you like it or not, speed matters. A nation made up of 30 or even 300 million slackers is not going to prosper.
To put it positively and make it more personal, producing something of value quickly is critical to your career success.
What specific service do you have to offer and when can you deliver? Two questions to keep in mind.
If you enjoy cooking, can you cook and serve food fast enough to make a living at it? If you are good at building things, can you bid on a job and complete it fast enough to get the money flowing and the bills paid?
Every career has deadlines you will need to deal with. As you become more skilled in your vocational domain, these time restraints will be easier to live with.
So focus, first of all, on becoming very good at what you do. The speed will follow.
