Resistance keeps you upright

After listening to the guide do their best to convince everyone in the raft that they were likely to drown on the way down the Royal Gorge this past week in Colorado, she finished her little speech by stating, “the best thing you can do to stay in the boat is paddle hard.” She explained that paddling creates resistance and keeps you upright. As you feel yourself falling out of the boat, paddling creates a strong base and helps keep you in the boat.

Leaders need resistance, without it we fall out of the boat. In fact here’s a list of the 5 deadliest things that can happen to leaders without resistance.

1. Bad decision making

2. Loss of focus

3. Stop growing

4. Drift off course

5. Atrophy
