Understanding the Power Curve and When to Step on the Gas

When you think it's time to brake, accelerate!

I am not a racecar driver. Nor do I play one on TV.

Many years ago, I had an amazing boss at KNDD, 107.7 The End, the radio station that brought Seattle's grunge music to the world. Anna was one of the best managers I've ever worked with. At the time, she was in her early 40s and running a $100 million radio station. She knew a thing or two about a thing or two.

One day while gazing out the window of her high rise office, she clued me into a metaphor that has stuck with me for decades. She told me about the concept of "the power curve."

Understanding the power curve will help you navigate the stressful times in life and work. Because you know it's going to happen. Again. So you might was well learn some physics to get you through the insanity.
