“If you have everything under control, you’re not moving fast enough.” – Mario Andretti

Today, we are moving at the speed of digital.  The pace of change is breathtaking, and the magnitude of the transformation is overwhelming.

Settling into a comfort zone and wishing away the accelerating pace of change is not going to work. The false sense of security that comes with all things being in control is nothing but.

To move fast and get ahead companies and individuals must let go of being in the comfort zone and feeling in control and instead step on the accelerator.  And find the sweet spot where you are moving faster than your instinct to feel in control but not at a maniacal speed where a crash is all but certain.
