Don’t constantly be on the lookout for stability — once you’ve got that base level. You want to stay “in training” — that’s the term I used here — keep “in training.” You want to go to the gym — got to the transition gym — every so often and make sure that you haven’t lost the ability to lift that transitional weight you need to lift.

You want to be able to better weather the storms and I know we don’t sail a lot these days, but sailing metaphors sometimes are some of the best metaphors for our lives. Because we want to roll with waves. We don’t want to be capsized. We don’t want to be swamped. We don’t want to be driven under by the changes in our lives. We want to just, sit like a little cork on top of the water and roll with the changes. Sometimes there are going to he violent changes and sometimes they’ll be smaller, but we want to be on top of the waves not underneath them somewhere. And the way we do that is by constantly engaging in that change.
