Alpine skiing and leadership
How tight are your bindings?
Alpine skiing is more than a gravity sport. It's a sport enabled by measured tension.
In alpine skiing bindings attach the ski boots and thereby the skier to the skis.
The bindings contain a spring that you set the tension of before you hit the slopes.
They are designed so that if you fall with enough energy they will release. The skis will fly off and protect you from breaking something.
If your bindings are set too loose and you're an expert skier, you'll find that you are losing your skis at very inopportune times.
If your bindings are set too tight and you're a beginner, you could get hurt.
When it comes to the icy slopes of life how tight are your bindings?
What built in safety feature do you have in place that can save you without thinking?
How tightly attached are you to your skis as you plummet through the the steep icy slopes of life?
It's like the old saying goes:
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for you.
