In ski jumping, the winner is the one that can lean forward the most. But if you lean forward too much, you fall on your face.
I can picture this as a good metaphor for business. Leaning forward is an act of courage.
What about leaning backward?
Leaning backward is about not taking risks, but if you lean backward too much you fall too.
I prefer to lean forward and see the goal and take the risks instead of leaning backward hoping a chair is there.
