Why Walking is the Key to Being More Productive

Erling Kagge:

People always believe they save time by taking a taxi. Let’s say you take a taxi and it takes 10 minutes when walking would take 20. Mathematically, you save 10 minutes. But in those 10 minutes in a taxi, you didn’t experience anything. If you walk in New York, nothing great is going to happen, necessarily, but something is going to happen. That makes those 20 minutes so much more rich than the 10 minutes in the taxi. So I’m not walking because I think it’s better than driving. I’m walking because life is getting a little bit richer than if you drive.

Ik doe bijna altijd alles te voet, of ’t moest een uitzondering zijn. Ik ga vaak zelfs wat te ver (bijvoorbeeld om een station verder dezelfde trein te nemen in plaats van te wachten op het perron). Dit is echt de beste omschrijving van “waarom” die ik al las.
