Vince Lombardi once said, "We would accomplish many more things if we didn't think of them as impossible." Sometimes the impossible happens, and happens quite fast. Patrick Collison has put together this list of "people quickly accomplishing ambitious things together." Some examples:

  • The first jet fighter used by the US Air Force was designed and delivered in 143 days
  • Disneyland was brought to life in 366 days
  • Amazon Prime was implemented in 6 weeks

Pretty amazing stuff! Worth remembering the next time you think a project or task feels too daunting (or reminding your teams when they ask for more time to get something done).
