Do you know that most sharks must keep swimming?
They must keep moving forward to absorb oxygen from the water into their gills.
Otherwise they drown.
The same happens if they’re dragged backwards.
They are a creature built for moving forward.
Keep moving forward
I don’t get why you’d live any other way?
Maybe it’s a problem.
This year people have told me it is.
Because I refuse to stop and obsess about whatever they think they know from whatever news source they think is the accurate one.
This week a CEO told me that he’s scared the vaccine will sterilize his kids, while another told me that the unvaccinated kid next door would kill her father.
Especially when the waters are this filthy…
You’ve just gotta keep swimming forward.
It’s like global warming
All these people warming the globe talking about it.
Everyone’s an activist these days.
Just do something.
That’s one thing I respect about Elon Musk.
You rarely see him talking about global warming.
How you’ve gotta do this or that.
Or how someone’s gotta get us a backup planet.
He just focuses nearly every waking hour on what he’s doing about it.
When your goals are this important
It’s easy to keep moving forward, right?
Certainly it’s easier to avoid the noise.
It’s like one of the SpaceX engineers said that they measure every decision by whether it accelerates or slows down a Mars landing.
Or the motto for Jeff Bezos’ spacefaring Blue Origin—Step by step ferociously.
That’s pretty cool, right?
Yes, perhaps it’s a little intense too.
But as you know, I don’t mind a little intense.
And especially right now, it’s a good time to be ferociously swimming forward.
