In a recent blog by Seth Godin he paints an astoundingly simple visual when referencing people biking by him at a faster rate, “it’s not a bike race, it’s a bike ride. There is no winning, just the riding.”
These are the mental gymnastics we do daily.
Are we doing enough?
Why isn’t it moving fast enough?
Why aren’t we getting more attention?
A better question is “Why does it matter?”
We would be happier by accepting where we are at and relish the fact that we were able to get to this point.
We don’t need a timer.
Sometimes we’ll feel we are going slow and sometimes we’ll feel we are going fast.
Either way, we must be grateful we are on the path we are on.
Many don’t have the luxury to ride the bike they want let alone pedal in the direction they choose.
