You'll have dreams, of course. Of businesses, relationships, travel and beautiful custom-built fixies. But dreams attract drag. You'll create drag by deciding far too early that they are not achievable. A dream expressed to a friend, lover or member of the family is a dream often squashed and laden with drag. Dreams do cause hope and excitement but like much in life they come accompanied with a dark side: a side which dashes, which sprays cynicism and multiplies objections.
So what's to be done with drag? Ask any engineer of a new car project: streamline your project. Keep it under wraps until the last minute. Stay nimble and keep the project team small. Keep to the essentials, tell the fewest number of people possible. Get precise, get real and minimise drag: a little is needed to keep you grounded. But too much and you'll never take off.
