The skills I acquired as a sailor served me well, for they gave me a
sense of pace which I might not otherwise possess. I see people all
about me who have never developed an adequate inner clock and who are
never at one with the wind because of it. The frantic individual tacks
too soon, jumping from job to job, friendship to friendship, spouse to
spouse, losing headway at every turn. The obtuse individual remains on
the same tack too long, investing too much time, talent, and energy
in a course that takes him far from his avowed objective. But the
seasoned sailor stays on the same tack as long as it appears
advantageous, and then, at the appropriate moment, pushes the tiller
toward the sail and deftly changes direction.
