Augusto Pinaud Francis Wade and

0:00:31.800,0:00:37.890
Art Gelwicks we're going to be talking about

0:00:34.610,0:00:40.200
productivity and the need for speed you

0:00:37.890,0:00:43.200
know I'm a New Yorker as some people

0:00:40.200,0:00:46.410
know and as a New Yorker I'm frequently

0:00:43.200,0:00:48.420
told that I speak really fast and I tell

0:00:46.410,0:00:52.710
them that I just am more efficient with

0:00:48.420,0:00:54.449
communicating but but you know what's

0:00:52.710,0:00:55.890
really interesting about this is that I

0:00:54.449,0:00:58.739
think that I think that there are

0:00:55.890,0:01:01.739
different ways in which at least in

0:00:58.739,0:01:03.930
English people tend to see language

0:01:01.739,0:01:06.689
being communicated faster or slower for

0:01:03.930,0:01:08.430
example the British speak faster than

0:01:06.689,0:01:11.600
Americans they tend to think Americans

0:01:08.430,0:01:14.070
speak very very slowly with a drawl and

0:01:11.600,0:01:17.670
and I'm I've always been curious about

0:01:14.070,0:01:20.970
the the sort of linguistic cultures that

0:01:17.670,0:01:23.159
have developed because of that and but

0:01:20.970,0:01:26.820
today but I really want to focus on for

0:01:23.159,0:01:30.060
us all is really the importance of speed

0:01:26.820,0:01:32.520
in a productivity system that one is

0:01:30.060,0:01:34.710
developing what are the issues that we

0:01:32.520,0:01:37.259
tend to encounter when we when we do go

0:01:34.710,0:01:39.030
for speed over say any number of other
