Fun at the ice rink

“Is this relationship healthy?”

“Well, can you leave?”

Because in life, as in business, the only healthy relationship is the one you’re always free to walk away from—with just a mild withdrawal syndrome in the worst-case scenario.

Then why do we keep luring our partners into the quicksand of chains of command, secrecies, dependencies, and fine print?

Let’s reimagine our relationships as a thick sheet of ice instead. We skate fast on the smooth surface and hold onto each other for balance. We loop, we flip, sometimes we fall on our ass.

Who would ever want to leave so much fun?
