With ski season quickly approaching, this quote came to mind.
It’s exciting to visualize the line you want to take when standing at the top of a mountain—especially when you’re pushing down a familiar, challenging track. But even well-worn trails will have unexpected obstacles. A tight line may swing wide, a fast cruise may be interrupted by ski-school, the deep powder can hide a branch that stops your progress.
Second to worse case scenario: you clip-out, reset, clip-in and continue. (The worse case scenario is someone takes you down the mountain.)
Seems like a good metaphor for life.
