I remember when I had the chance to listen to John Wooden speak, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to what he had to say.

Good morning Paul. You need some peaks and you need some valleys. Whatever you do avoid straightlining, not good! Enjoy your day!

Oh I don't know about this Paul.....I used to ski really high peaks and loved every minute of it all the way down and back up again, over and over in Vail.  Pure joy being in nature!   And....I do know what you're really talking about generally :)
