We can swim against the current. It just takes more time and a lot more effort.
Every once a while, it is worth fighting the current – to drive change that might otherwise not have happened.
But, it is foolish to make a habit of doing so. We’re better off using currents to our advantage to make progress and using the limited energy and bandwidth we build up to fight it when absolutely necessary.
Learning when and where to apply our limited energy is the truest sign of good judgment.
