Pedestrian crossings…amazing things. I’m pretty sure we’re all familiar with how they work. You walk up, press the button, wait for the lights to cycle, then you walk across the road unscathed. Almost too easy.
Today, however, I watched someone walk up to a pedestrian crossing and proceed to press the button, maybe…oh I don’t know, 70 or 80 times? Incidentally, the lights didn’t change any faster. In fact (as most normal people know), pressing the button just once is sufficient to get the desired result.
It’s the Minimum Effective Dose.
The above story is a stupidly obvious example of the MED. Apart from being annoying and stupid, anything over and above the MED is basically pointless. Cote d’Ivoire Worse still, it could be sending you backwards. This can be particularly true regarding fitness training.
Don’t overdo it! The MED is nice.
That is all.
