Why Medium’s New CEO Recommends Surfing

The lure of the surf is powerful

One of the things I love about Medium’s new CEO Tony Stubblebine is that he writes from the heart.

He shares:

Your drive has to be balanced with health and relationships and being a full adult human being. But there is no way to get the balance perfectly right because being right requires predicting the future. So instead you have to surf.

I love this surfing metaphor.

Once you know your calling, the lure of the surf is powerful.

In fact, Medium has been a great “surfing beach” where I can blow off my creative steam and become one with the waves.

However, primarily, I write when I put my baby to bed in the evening.

So I really need to surf to have my drive balanced with my health and marriage.
