Last night was the first rehearsal with the new band. I thought I was pretty tardy arriving 15 minutes after the scheduled time only to discover I was the second one there; the last person arrived about an hour after the starting time. Contrasting this to the start-up world where there are seemingly endless tasks, all “high priority,” exhibits pretty different concepts of time. The first won’t be rushed, and the second can’t move fast enough. While the pressure of a deadline can be motivating to get things done, it sure is nice not to worry about the clock.
