Faster

My coworking space is just next to Euston Station in London and the HS2 project is about to start. The project is to cut journey times to Birmingham and Manchester by train.

Has anyone stopped to question, like say bigger, is faster any better?

Why is faster better? Says who?

But before committing £Billions, perhaps it’s a question often overlooked by the stakeholders who stand to financially gain.

Is a faster journey enough of a benefit, even if it’s agreed that faster is better.

Funny what we are told to convince us that this better than say better healthcare.

Busy

‘Whirlwind’ by Philip Dodson

Busy, that’s what we are encouraged to be.

Who says being busy is better?

Simply doing a lot, is that better?

Never pausing to take stock, is that better?

Maybe doing very little is best?

Why are we encouraged to always be busy?

Perhaps busy means we are too busy to question why we are busy and what we are busy with.
