As part of ‘learning to surf’, I was in Brittany for a week at the end of August, to take windsurfing lessons. It was intense with high waves and a lot of wind at times. There’s nothing you can do about the weather, so this is the ultimate example of ‘working with what you have’.
The most important tip I got was ‘always look in the direction where you want to go’. Don’t watch the board, the sail, or your feet, but keep your eyes focused on where you want to go. It makes a world of difference. Coincidentally, I’ve also had the exact same advice during surfing, skiing, karate, and business administration lessons! Could this be something we can apply to our entire lives? Keep your eyes on where you want to go!
