Is it really necessary to put in the effort of going against the current or is it best to follow the flow? I mean after you swim against it for so long, at some point you’ll get tired and be forced to go along, right? So, why not from the beginning? Why not save that energy for a time when it is most vital that you swim against the current, and power through that? Less time wasted and more time to stop and smell each individual….lily pad. You’re still in a river for god sakes.
