Default Revs!!!

When i start my truck up it revs at about 2,000 for 15 seconds then drops to 1700 for about a minute. the tempature is about 15-20 C. in the winter it was even worse. I know it is standard but im just woundering why and is there anything i can do to speed it up without forcing it into drive.

it's reving high because the temp sensor is reading cold and the computer is telling it that it needs to run at a certain rpm for a short while to warm up enough to run correctly.... the only thing i can think of to speed it up would be to put your foot on the gas and raise the revs up and keep it constant at around 2000 for a few minutes.....
