I don’t know if is is common to have a favorite point-of-sail…but I enjoy sailing close hauled more than the other angles of the wind. This sailing position is about 30 degrees off of windward….and the boat is actually moving upwind!
It is amazing to experience….because there is a fine line between 29 degrees (where the boat begins to lose power and cease to sail) vs. 30 degrees where she is moving like a kite!
So the wind – which would appear to be pushing against us – is actually providing the energy to move the sailboat forward.
Projects are like that as well. Sometimes the very forces which seem to oppose our progress actually provide the energy to move forward towards our goals. Embrace the opposition and allow them to do their work. Move forward with the knowledge that they often provide us with the power to succeed!
Thanks for listening.
