PERCEPTION OF TIME IS RELATIVE.
How might this apply to your business?
If people must wait for you to run a routine or complete a cycle before getting feedback, create the perception that things are moving faster than they are. Reveal part of the process as it is completing rather than show everything all at once. Or, offer a distraction: people who are mentally engaged in a task or present in the moment of an experience don’t notice how long it takes.
