Life is a current - a metaphor for ageing

Life is a current - a metaphor for ageing

Life is a current.

I recently stumbled upon a great metaphor about life and aging in a segment of Conan O’Brien’s podcast with Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. I’ll share the quote below.

"When you're born you're dropped into a fast current and so you don't even have to do anything and you just start growing taller. You start getting muscle, you start, you know, everything, and then the current starts to slow down in your late 20s early 30s, and then 40. And then the current kind of stands still, so in order to make any progress you need to kind of... [Conan here makes a moving, jerky body motion] But then the current starts moving against you, so that in order to just stay in the same place you need to start doing butterfly strokes and working hard."

I've been thinking a lot lately about this and I wanted to share it with you in this shorter-than-usual founder note.

Here is a link to the full clip:
