I drove 70KMs yesterday.
All the way to Manesar to my place.
Took 1.5 hours – typically less time, but it was good because the roads were empty, because of Sunday.
If we calculate the average speed, it is 45 KM per hour, as per this.
However, did I drive at that speed?
Not at all.
Rather, for most part of the journey, it was 80-100 KM per hour, due to national highway being empty.
It was rather the slow movement at some traffic signals, that brought down the overall speed.
We all know this. We’ve all experienced this. We are at a place of accepting this.
However, this is what makes life go average:
Small useless insignificant things done small number of times, come down to reduce the overall average of your phenomenal epic performance.
Our days, certainly, aren’t any different from those drives.
The question that might help us, is: Are we setting ourselves up for the 100KM per hour drive, or the 20 KM per hour, that brings the huge average down?
