What I Learned (1)

When I first started working
I asked a woman who lived near me
How long it took her to get to work

20 minutes, she said,
If I leave at such-and-such a time.
Or 40 minutes if I leave 10 minutes later.

What I learned?

It isn’t how fast you want to go
But how early you’re willing to leave
