Human crabbing

This term – human crabbing – comes from an aeronautical term that refers to the need to deliberately aim above your target destination in order to compensate for the force of wind.  If you aimed directly for your target in a high wind, you would actually end up many degrees off.

Human crabbing is about aiming for the best you can possibly imagine in your life, so that what you end up reaching is at the least pretty good.

It isn’t he same thing as expecting things to turn out perfectly: there’s so much about life that can change along the way. The point is that if you don’t aim for the best, then what you will probably end up with will be way below what you desire.

So, aim high. Higher than you even think possible.

Viktor Frankel

Quote of the Week

“When we treat man as he is we make him worse than he is.
When we treat him as if he already was what he potentially could be
We make him what he should be.”
― Goethe
