With apologies to Highlander (who ruined it anyway), I call this The Quickening.

It’s my tendency to work harder when the rewards are imminent.

I bet you’re the same.

But do you use this to slipstream life … or are you more likely to be chasing The Big Swing?

One of my smartest dumb questions is … “how can I bring the next reward closer?”

Because if I do that, I know that my attention and work rate will naturally increase.
