Learn to Swim is a breakdown of skills employed as a Paralympic athlete that helped me whether a career in startups. The skills learned as an athlete taught me how to guard my productive energy as a premium; prioritizing development and growth over real-time gratification. I intend to detail mental skills I have learned as an athlete and compare with anecdotes of my time in governance at a startup. Lessons include: moving strategically, drill process, leveling up to promote growth, preserving mission focus among others.
