Seen from the top, this path looks like a mild climb. Seen from the bottom, it is steeper than it looks. So how best do we climb the hill? We have three real choices.
1. We can run up the hill as fast as we can, and hope we don’t out of energy and breath before we make the top.
2. We can walk very slowly up the hill, which is not optimal, but it gets us to the top.
3. We can let the gill set the pace, moving faster and slower as the trail allows.
Life is the same as the hill. How we approach each day and the hills that come with each day is a measure of our personal success.
We don’t want to run as fast as we can, running out of energy before the day is done. We don’t wish to plod along wasting time on pointless tasks if we do not need to.
We want to speed up and slow down paying attention to the path up the hill, so we climb over the top with enough left to enjoy the view.
Letting yourself work with the hill, instead of fighting the hill and you will find the hills grow smaller and less frequent.
