A few months back I got a surfing lesson. I sucked pretty bad!
But being in the ocean was super life affirming. I want to get back into the ocean again and surf some more.
I think surfing is an ultimate life hack. You’re active, your having fun, you’re in the ocean, you’re improving your fitness. When I’m at the beach I see people in their 60’s surfing. I think that’s pretty cool.
If you want to get better at anything I reckon it helps to love what you want to get better at. Or have a really compelling reason to keep at it to propel you through sucking so you can enter the zone of performing.
