What 40 Years of Championship Surfing Taught Me

Morning Folks!!

Many of you don't know that I compete in Championship Surfing to this very day. Been studying waves for over 40 years. If you are a surfer you need to learn to catch and ride the wave. There is no difference whatsoever in business.

Waves Baby!!

And what do surfers do when there are no waves?


Have a Beach Party and wait until there are!

That is what I do as well. When there is business to be had there is no time to sleep and play. However when we have slow times like these, I don't sit around and fret. I just keep a keen eye open looking for the next wave. I don't waste my time and energy when there are no waves. But guess what? Even 80% of the 20% do. Not knowing the difference makes a HUGE difference. Now you know.

As far as the championship surfing. Well I have never been on a surfboard in my life. But that does not mean I don't have the ability to see, feel and understand the thrill. Then apply that to something else called "Business". I just found one single parallel that changed how I view things and it has served me very well for many years. I am a business surfer and I go for the gold every single day of my life!

Have a GREAT Day!
