Speed Vs. Velocity

personal development Feb 10, 2020

I often catch myself confusing or conflating speed and velocity. I mistake my going fast for making progress toward an intended target.

Here's the deal.

Speed is the rate at which an object covers distance. It's the distance traveled over a specified amount of time. Speed is ignorant of direction.

On the other hand, velocity is a vector quantity. It's the speed of something moving toward a destination. Velocity is direction-aware.

How fast are you going? Do you have a specific destination in mind? Wouldn't it make sense if you did?

Let's keep flying higher together with intention!
