I write in my journal. Every day. Ideally first thing in the morning but sometimes not until after the kids go to bed.
In August, I wrote a lot about scarcity and abundance. This is my favorite bit:
The rising tide lifts all the surfers, not just the fastest or first one into the water.
There is not just one big wave. There is wave after wave after wave. Waves for all the surfers. One surfer’s ability to catch a wave has nothing to do with whether the surfer before him caught a wave. It depends on the individual’s ability and determination and a little luck as to the timing of the waves. But it depends nothing on the other surfers.
The other surfers can work together and all catch waves or they can fight each other and then everyone struggles and everyone suffers.
