In sailing, the term ‘back and fill’ means to use the advantage of the tide being with you when the wind is not. It’s a way of getting things done; an alternate plan. Don’t be a one trick pony. Always have a plan B or even a plan C. One dimensional people are seen as just that, one dimensional and they have no way of coping with the things that seek to knock them off kilter. Adapt to your surroundings and use them to get done what you want to get done.
