In a pinch…

Today, after listening to my client describe his situation in detail, I coached him up very ccd. I told him to be more like a lobster. You see, friend, lobsters have been around for something like 350 million years. They survived whatever it was that took out the dino’s, who’ve been gone for 60 some million years. Lobsters live on the ocean floor and protect their turf without often going to war. When they encounter another lobster, they mostly shadow box and shoot hormones to establish their position. They’ve got a live and let live mindset and don’t really want to get into a pinch off. So, they stand up straight, shoulders back and rarely fight to the death.

If you want to know more, read Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules for Life. It’s a worthy read. So, friend, you and I might be better off being more like a lobster. Stand up straight, shoulders back. Strong core. Authentic opus. Discipline of productive action. Like a lobster, you’ll know what to do next time you get in a pinch.

Live hard. Love harder…
