But have you ever considered what you would be doing if you were not doing what you are doing? Say you’re a teacher but then the district decided it needed to spice things up so enacted a mid-year cut wherein the lowest performing teacher would be fired during the middle of the year. Or a construction artist but, same scenario, spice needed, lowest performing workman cut mid project.What would you fall back on? Shoot for some dream or become extra practical and get a job flipping burgers?
Well, Japanese hunk Kanoa Igarashi, near-ish losing his job as a professional surfer, has telegraphed a possible shift to professional running in a just-released podcast interview with sponsor Red Bull.
You must listen here, but a sampling to get you started.
“You know, it really reminds me of surfing. I love that feeling of taking he first few steps because I know it’s going to be my time: my time to be free, my time to be myself. I can listen to the music that I want to and I can run where I want to, in any direction that I want. It’s empowering.”
Glorious but the question must be asked. When not running, who is dictating what music Igarashi is allowed to listen to, which direction he can go etc.?
Is this a signal for help?
