The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Great way to think about it. Thanks for the tip. I feel much better now about the two specific skill that I was trying to practice on Monday as I was still very much in the bottom right quadrant.


I have nothing super-helpful to add, but I must tell you that as a prisoner of the corporate world, I have been programmed to believe that *everything* can be described in terms of four quadrants. Therefore, I am completely on-board with this post.

Nice one!
