The Way I See It
Have you noticed that when music is loud or a room is noisy people talk faster and when they talk faster they move faster? There have been studies on this. Don’t ask me who did the studies because I only remember reading about the studies but not who did them or where they were done. Anyway, because I read about the studies I have on occasion done my own quasi-studies of the phenomenon of volume and velocity and agree with the professionals.
The places that have benefitted most from the professional studies are stores and restaurants. It has been proven that when the music is turned up in restaurants people talk and eat faster and don’t linger at the table. When they eat faster and don’t linger it allows the restaurant to seat and serve more people. In stores when the music is loud people tend to look at the merchandise more quickly and make their selections faster and tend to make more impulse purchases. So, volume and velocity mean more business and more money spent which means more profits and we all know that’s what makes the world go round.
While pondering this I got to wondering if I were to turn the music up loud in my apartment if I would move faster and get more done. After pondering awhile I decided not to test the theory because I don’t like loud music; it makes me cranky and that is not a good thing. Besides no one pays me to do anything in my apartment so there are no profits and therefore no chance for greater profits.
The way I see it… there is no reason for me to change the volume and velocity of my life. I am quite happy quietly and slowly doing very little.
