Will You Leap?

Leap of Faith Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade | Indiana jones, Harrison  ford indiana jones, Crusade

The sense of danger must not disappear:
The way is certainly both short and steep,
However gradual it looks from here;
Look if you like, but you will have to leap…

A solitude ten thousand fathoms deep
Sustains the bed on which we lie, my dear:
Although I love you, you will have to leap;
Our dream of safety has to disappear.
(excerpt from W.H. Auden’s poem “Leap Before You Look“)

Just like you can’t control who you fall in love with, you can’t control when a project seizes you so much that you just have to do it.

But falling in love is just the first step.

After that, it’s a decision. Will you or won’t you take the leap?
