Skiing with purpose

When I go skiing, there is a difference in the experience when:

  1. I have a time I need to be done by.
  2. There is an objective (particulary a bigger one) that is at hand.
  3. I am just out there with no particular plan.

When I have structure and deadlines there is a need for efficiency. Perhaps, when I even pick up the pace and move a half-step quicker.

When I am just lackadaisical with my time, less gets done.

It’s not a bad thing. We all need unstructured time. Time to let our minds wander, get lost in the mountains, or have leisure. But when we choose to be mindful, there is no question more can be accomplished.
