What we want is power


“We don’t give a damn about energy. What we want is power.”

~Power Hungry, Ch. 1

The difference between energy and power…

  • Energy is the ability to do work.
  • Power is the rate at which work gets done.

The two can be related using time:

  • Power = Energy/time

We care about how much power we have, not how much energy. It is more power that allows us to move more quickly. Power is what accomplishes tasks – energy is just lip service.
