To the person seeking to move a boulder to the top of a hill, gravity is an ever-present, malevolent force to be fought with, pushed on, and toiled against.

To the person seeking to move a boulder down the hill, however, gravity is a benevolent ally that takes care of most of the work itself.

We know gravity is a constant.

What’s not a constant is how we choose to view it and how that view informs the ways in which we work with or against it.

Used wisely, simple physics provides many solutions that allow us to leverage gravity even when moving our boulders uphill.

All it takes is an awareness of the tools and environment at our disposal and a little ingenuity.

What are the forces you’re currently working against, and how can you put them to use for you instead?
