I’ve been tweeting a lot about surfing the last few days – and I’ve gotten so much feedback that I thought I would share about what surfing represents in my life. Okay, first of all, it’s some GREAT damned R&R – it’s fun, it’s friends – and it’s the silence of deepwater and the rushing thunder of the surf all tied together. It is predictable and yet unpredictable.
For me, it is a lot like business. To begin with, it takes COURAGE. Getting out there and standing on your board, on the ocean, in front of people. Yeah, I can see very clearly how that risk MIRRORS every business I’ve ever built. And it takes PRACTICE and PATIENCE (the latter is NOT my strong suit!) But being PREPARED to accept the learning curve – to know that it WILL take practice and learning – and that you WILL fall off a hundred times until you learn the necessary skills and balance – that is magical.
BALANCE – oh yeah. Figuring out how to shift and move and accommodate the changing ties and rolling surf. To remain UPRIGHT – that’s got business ALL over it.
I’ll share more on this topic in Part 2 over the weekend.
