Everyone’s timing is different.

I thought I’d share this video with you all…
I believe it is extremely relevant, especially for our swimmers currently in High School.

I was 23 when I began University, roughly the same time when many of my friends were graduating and starting careers. Until this time, I had shown very little interest in Academics, it just didn’t inspire me. I felt like I was being left behind, that I had stepped off the path that was intended for me; This is of course a lot of nonsense.

The idea of 13 or 14 year old me dictating the rest of my life is a bizarre concept, this is a lot of responsibility for a young teenager with little life experience.

We all move at our own pace and there is no need to follow someone else’s timeline.

Do what you love and love what you do.
