We’re surfing not sculpting

20130403-101518.jpgI read something today that essentially said ‘we can’t control anything, what looks like mastery is really just cooperating with what is’.

It looks like control because it is happening in real time. We are alert, aware, supple and responsive. We have a goal and a plan, but we adjust in the moment to the reality that is present, not just plug along like bulls.

We aren’t blindly obedient to a set of plans laid out at the beginning of the project, we update. We aren’t carving our life in stone. We are riding the wave.
