*On this date 11 years ago I made the leap from chasing my own athletic ambitions to instead following my dream of becoming a sport psychologist. The move to CA was filled with many risks, changes, and challenges. But despite all the hard days it was also the best decision of my life and led me to places like this and getting to know and work with some of the most incredible human beings. So if you’re standing at the end of the diving board... take the leap, travel more, don’t put life off or on hold. #tbt
The leap at the swimming pool is obvious indeed.
Ten steps up the ladder.
The wait at the end of the board.
The moment in between not-diving and diving.
The leap is clear. We can see it and we can feel it.
In day to day life, we have worked to eliminate that feeling. Organizations and marketers and friends work hard to have it happen gradually instead. An incremental, almost invisible creep along a slippery slope, until the next thing we know we’re in a rut, or bored, or ill.
We’ve constructed a life where we rarely leap (new job!) and most of the time, we coast or fade or increment our way forward.
It might be worth investing the effort into turning some of your decisions back into leaps. @sethgodin
