a: Running ~
b: getting drunk

What:

" One women tells me, as we sit on the grass, that she thinks running is like getting drunk in reverse. With drinking, it feels great at first, but then you start feeling awful. With running, you feel awful at first, but then, after you finish, you feel great. That sound like a much better deal. "

a: Running a City ~
b: Paddling a Canoe

What:

'A canoe really doesn't want to stay on a straight line. Wind and waves almost seem to have a mind of their own of where the canoe should go. So the person steering from the stern needs to adjust direction and momentum several strokes ahead. Small and steady course corrections keep you most closely to your desired route.'

Fog On The Road?

a: Running a company ~
b: driving a car

What: "Running a company is like driving a car. You need to be able to see what's coming down the road. The dysfunction in Washington has created a fog, and when driving in the fog, you have to slow down."
