Life Principle

Recognize when to ride the wave.

There will be times when you’re headed in one direction but feeling like there might be other goals, dreams, etc.worth exploring instead. The best advice I can give in such a situation is that things in life happen in waves, and when you’re on a good wave, you’ve got to ride it until it becomes less good. You need to constantly evaluate the value of the path you’re on versus the potential that could come out of exploring—and ride the biggest wave you can find.
