I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I’ve heard that when there’s a storm coming, buffalo run toward it instead of away from it.
They run into the storm because the quickest way to mitigate the effects of the storm is to meet the storm head on vs. trying to avoid it by running away.
You’ll meet its velocity with your own opposite velocity. Any damage or affect of the storm will have minimal effect.
I’m not sure if that is true about buffalo.
But I’m relatively sure that it’s true of us. If we run toward the thing that we’re scared to do, often the fear dissipates. The thing gets done. And we discover that we spent hours worrying about something that took 3 minutes to do.
So just run toward the storm.
One of two things will happen:
- You’ll discover you were afraid for no reason or
- You’ll get through it anyway and waste less time in a state of worry.
You gotta do the thing anyway. Just start sprinting toward the clouds.
