I challenge you not to only “ride the wave,” but to go one better.
Do as Thoreau says, and launch yourself on every wave.
To me, launching yourself means to first see the opportunity in any given moment, and then to leverage that opportunity.
The “opportunity” can be something as simple as seeing the beauty in a single flower (there’s something to be said for “stopping to smell the roses.”)
The opportunity can also be something as complex as paying attention when an idea flits through your mind, and stopping. Writing it down. Brainstorming.
Or, just doodling!
The point is not only to seize the moment, but also to enjoy it.
John and his wife love riding the wave – with each other!
