I caught a bit of the Formula One on TV the other day.
They were pulling the cars out of the pits to start qualifying.
When the car rolled out of the garage it couldn’t make it around the turn. The pit crew had to wheel it backwards by hand so the driver could turn the wheel and get it out on track. If the pit crew wasn’t there the driver would be stuck.
When it was on the track and moving at speed it could turn on a dime.
A Formula One car can generate 3.5g, or 3.5 times it’s own weight, thanks to aerodynamic downforce.
But only when it’s moving at high speed.
When it’s moving fast its nimble and agile. When it’s moving slow it can barely turn a corner and needs other people to shunt it around.
This is exactly the same as life.
When you’re moving fast, obstacles that inevitably get in your way can be navigated easily and you sail past them.
When you’re moving slow you don’t have enough energy to manoeuvre and you have to be shunted backwards and forwards to get around it.
Everyone needs a pit crew to keep in racing trim.
But if they’re just there to push you around the garage without getting into the race it will be a frustrating experience.
Speed is a choice.
Move fast or stay in the pits.
