"To perfect things, speed is a unifying force," the race-car driver
Michael Schumacher has said. "To imperfect things, speed is a
destructive force."

When I saw this line in a recent WSJ article I caught the author's intent.  He was talking about our inherent need to slow down in life.  Things move so fast today with email, mobile web, texting and twittering…it's easy to find yourself moving at a speed for which we were not designed.

And yet, I've worked so long to drag organizations off their status quosters that I thought immediately of another great quote from Mario Andretti that has become a kind of mantra for me:

"If everything seems under control…you're just not going fast enough." Mario Andretti
The Fine Line Between Too Fast and Not Fast Enough
