If that’s your path, there are three options:
1. Work on keeping the boat going straight
2. Bail water ever faster
3. Find a new boat before it’s too late
We call the first one persistence and diligence .
The second one— urgency .
And the third one, the one that’s often the best strategy: quitting .
Go ahead and change your tactics when the situation demands. Your goals are real, your intent stays the same–but the way you get there needs to change.
Sometimes having the vision to see what’s ahead is more productive than trying to get there faster.
