Ask any soldier and they will confirm something: It is a lot easier to hold territory than to re-take it. And boy is that true in our business…
It sure is a lot more exciting to reach a new rank, and stay qualified at rank – than it is to try and rebuild and re-qualify for an old rank!
That’s why it is worth the work, the self-discipline and effort to stay qualified. Because it will be a lot easier to stay motivated and in action that way.
As Eric Worre likes to say, “If they find you dead on a mountain, make sure it’s a new one you’re climbing, not an old one you’re sliding down!”
