The high dive

Jumping off the high dive is a very committing process.

Once you do it, there is no going back.

It’s much easier than to make the decision while on the ground.

The worst place, however, is to decide when you are standing on the edge, peering over into the abyss.

Far too often, we are standing on the edge of something great and daring, but we hesitate. We blink. We say to ourselves, “I’m not cut out for this.”

You are far less likely to take a leap standing on the edge.

The alternative then is to commit before stepping up the ladder.

The good news is after you have made the leap once, it’s easier to do it again.

Because it’s far easier to do things we can imagine.
