Emotions last 90 seconds. They roll in one after the other like waves breaking along the shore.
The skilled surfer watches the waves as they roll in. He decides which waves to ride. He makes that difficult decision to either bail, abandoning his surfboard and saving himself, or stay with the wave and ride it to the end. His decision is based on an honest assessment of his skills, without judgment or self-criticism, and without investment in perceived outcomes.
