Rabbi Akiva's Davening Style

When he was with the congregation, he would pray quickly so as not to be a burden on those praying with him (who would respectfully wait for him to finish). But when he prayed alone, one could leave him in one corner and afterwards find him in another corner, due to his many bows and prostrations. (Talmud Berachot 31a)
How do you make your davening more than a performance?
