Why you should be in a hurry

Published on June 30, 2009

“Why are you always in such a hurry, Mr Lipwig?”

Mr Lipwig, chairman of Ankh-Morpork bank, was asked the question when he wanted the paper-money-printing-machines to replace the gold-coin-making-machines in the shortest time possible. Hire more golems, give bonus, do anything possible.

And his answer to the question is:

Because people don’t like change. But make the change fast enough and you go from one type of normal to another.

Do things in a hurry, and it could turn out better for everyone.
