I was contemplating my workload and the tasks that need to get done and I began to visualize a surfer, waiting for the right wave. The surfer isn’t beating himself up for not surfing faster or more efficiently, he is patiently watching and waiting for the right wave, having put himself into an ideal position by training and planning ahead of time. When the wave shows up, he is ready, and at that point the fun begins.
I reviewed my workload with a surfer’s mindset. The seeds have been sown and the preparation has been done. What can I do to find the flow that maximizes my results and creates the most fun? How can I wait patiently, but not passively?
