A lot of time in surfing is spent waiting for waves. Straddling the board, looking at the open sea. Even as a good one comes, the surfer close to the crest rides the wave, and I resolve not to interfere. Much time being unable to ride goes on... but I'm sure my own wave will come. Then onlookers watch as I say, "This is my wave." I take off... and stand up on the board.
In the moment the spreading wave brakes, I slide, ascend again, then plummet downwards. In my body and spirit, a wonderful feeling grows. It is certainly "my own wave."
Creativity and business are the same. That's right, your own wave is on its way. Having rhythm is important, and you have may have the need to wait. Then, when the time comes, you need to be in the right mindset. The stored-up strength, let it out in that moment, and spring out... Success is unexpected and gradual, progressive, and refined. Recently, I've realized that's how I want things to be.
