Speed or Velocity?

Without going into to many details of physics, we could say that speed is how fast you car is moving while velocity is how fast you displace yourself from your original position; in other words speed is ignorant of direction while velocity is aware of direction.

When we think of velocity we must think of moving ourselves further from the position where we started, there is no velocity without tracking our direction.

I use this example because so very often we see things going at an incredible speed, being super busy, but not moving things really anywhere. Direction, a purpose, a goal, and patience are essential to arrive on time and at the right destination.
