Wile E. Coyote learnt the hard way when chasing Road Runner in a railroad handcar. The thing about handcars is that they’re really hard to get going from a standing start, with a lot of effort needed just to progress slowly… but once in motion, it becomes easier and easier to pick up speed. Soon you’re gliding at pace and the handcar only needs a regular light touch on the handle to maintain momentum. If you stop pumping the handcar entirely or pump too infrequently, however, the handcar slows and grinds to a halt …and you have the hard start from scratch to get it going again, losing time and distance travelled in the process. Wile E. Coyote let his handcar slow too much he was unable to escape the train catching up with him!
There are always choices in business, even when your handcar is stationary and there’s a train fast approaching – but why make things harder than they need to be!
