I close my eyes in the crowd, in that town square, in that time. Vangelis is playing – Chamonix town square at the start of UTMB
I can still feel the tears now, many years later.
The point of life is to grow and to have fun. If you can have fun while growing then all the better.
So we need to push and do bigger, and better, and further, and more dangerous, and push the boats further from shore…
Or do we?
We confuse doing with growing.
Doing is busy, doing is filling our day.
Growth is deeper.
Growth stays with you, doing does not. This is the acid test.
Growing is internal. You probably have nothing to show for it, nothing to tweet about.
Only you will know the difference.
So when you tackle your next adventure is it to grow or to do?
