Sporting records sometimes shave a few tiny fractions of a second off the time taken to complete a particular endeavour. In real life, however, little can be done with these parings of time. Take your foot of the accelerator (or ease off the gas if you prefer) you won't be able to recycle that time into anything meaningful at the other end of the journey. Practise a smoother, faster method of unlocking your front door instead if you really must.
