Eye on the Prize
In a few days when I finish ny round of seminars in new Zealand, I am hooking up with my long-time wilderness/adventuring partner for a ten day remote back-country flyfishing trip. So today I got out my maps, scanned the bits I needed and laminated them in readiness for some wet river-crossings. I did a little research on the net about river-crossing technique, to see if I could dig up something I hadn’t thought of – sure enough I did. Little things like this, small interesting projects, keep me happy and motivated.
In the martial arts industry for example – at one time there were pretty much only two ranks; white belt and black belt. Nowadays, most styles have included a range of colored belts in between. Why? To keep the student interested, Small goals, small steps – each as enjoyable and meaningful as the next. I like the idea. I love to live that way. Better go. Need to print out the gear list for my end of November trip.
Eye on the prize.
