The Tarzan Principle

In my previous job transfers I have always been guided by the Tarzan Principle.

It is a simple rule yet very useful.

The principle goes... "Never let go of the vine, unless you have a new vine to hold on to. Otherwise you'll fall".

Today, for the first time in my career I am violating that principle.

I am letting go of the vine, of my comfort zone, of my security with nothing definite to hold on to.

I am just relying on faith and conviction and unwavering commitment to one's values.
It's a bold leap into the unknown.
A venture unto unchartered territories
It's a bit scary but I know in my heart that it would be for the best.

Right now I am just relying on the wisdom of Mark Twain..

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
