I used to love the King Crab Festival which was celebrated in my hometown of Kodiak, Alaska every year. I used to love the activities, the food and the rides which pulled in to town each early summer.

Many of my friends growning up had dad's who were crab fisherman. Each year these dads and their sons would load dozens of crabpots onto their boats and unload them into the waters around Kodiak. Many would go all the way to the Bering Sea with those crabpots in search of King Crab, Tanner and Opilio crab. Those crabpots were extremely heavy so the ropes which hauled them from the bottom of the sea had to be strong as well.

When looking at this industry and especially those nylon ropes which lifted those crabpots, there is a life and spiritual lesson which I would like to share with you all. When one looks closely at those all important ropes, there is a picture which we all need to be reminded of.

What we reinforce or what we repeat is critical to our productivity and impact in our lives and in our worlds.
