Increased Speed and Urgency

From Jack Dorsey’s re-introduction as CEO of Twitter today:

My focus is to build teams that move fast, and learn faster. In the past 3 months we have increased our speed and urgency at both companies.October 5, 2015

It seems strange to desire increased urgency on your team. This brings me back to some thoughts I’ve been writing down about different types of fuel powering your work. I need to compile them all together.

A sense of urgency or stress is definitely on my list, but I also have it earmarked as one that rapidly depletes you in the end game.
