Hawaiian: “A ‘one Hana nui ka alu’ia”
”No task is too big when done together”
Four people paddle down the face of a big fifteen foot wave, each pulling hard in perfect rhythm with each other in the canoe. They lean forward then, pull back the paddle using their core, legs and upper body strength. If they get in the wave late, the canoe will pearl (nose dive) or huli (flip over). They are a team; totally committed; totally as one going big.
A man and a woman on the same surfboard paddle hard down the face of a wave. She rolls her shoulders forward to reach further to pull reach and pull through the water as the wave face falls out beneath them. Suddenly the nose tips and they are dropping in. They get up as one person. She leans against him as he grabs one of her ankles and the small of her back as she grabs that same wrist. She jumps high up into a back arch as he lifts her with all his might fully extending his arm above his hand as they surf the hollow wave.
“No task is too big when done together.” We each do our job and when needed encourage the other or even adjust to help the other. Two are much stronger and much more capable than one at accomplishing a task. Besides that it is much more thrilling when you can share a quest, a challenge, with people you love and respect.
Steve, Luke and Chase bonded through the days of their “Clean Break” and because of this they each experienced break-throughs. What teams are you a part of? How can you paddle more strongly and in rhythm with them?
