When in doubt, punch it out “full throttle.”
Recently speaking with my brother who is a motor sports enthusiast, I asked him how the heck do jet skiers hit boats? He explained and his words held deep life wisdom.
Jet skis run on thrust and to turn them, they need throttle or stepping on the gas. When people think they might collide, as in this example hit a boat, the last thing they want to do is accelerate and hit the gas— which is actually necessary to turn the trajectory of the vehicle.
This a lot like life. When we get afraid of the direction we know we should be going, we pull back. We step off the gas when throttling up would change our direction and likely be the best choice for a more beneficial result.
