What is an Anchor?
In normal usage, an anchor can be the stable rock supporting an effort or keeping an object in one place. Good or bad? When used to keep a boat or ship in place during normal use, it means you can always find what is anchored. During a bad storm, it can mean finding it at the bottom of the ocean, with the anchor doing more harm than good, unless the anchor line has enough flexibility to reduce risk at the same time.
In human terms, an anchor should have the action potential to be both the foundation and the best person to plan around when seeking a change. The flexibility to be both the voice of reason and the spirit of motivation. Always strive to be an effective anchor while being flexible enough to meet all needs. Be the anchor!
