I've Never Said "It's Like Riding A Bike" In 30 Years

Uncategorized Jul 29, 2020

It went like this.

"Mom, I know what you need to work on while we're sheltering-in-place."

I braced myself. 

"It's time for you to ride a bike, Mom."

It had been 30 years since I'd ridden a bike after developing a fear of being hit by a car. 

The consequence?

I'd never ridden bikes with my kids. Ever. It was a "dad" thing.

For decades I've cringed when I heard the expression "it's like riding a bike"... 🙄

I am happy to report that I have since ridden a bike. Twice.

The husband even rewarded me with a margarita when I made it to our favorite restaurant. Success!

Guess what I didn't do to get out of my own way and out having fun? 

I didn't watch a webinar.

You don't learn (or relearn) how to ride a bike by watching a guru opine about it.

Sure, we can get tips & inspiration from others.

Eventually, we have to stop watching, studying, and planning, though.

We've got to get to the doing (and improving) to move our business forward.

What do you need to do this week?

Don't put it off any longer.

Just take a ride around the block and let me know how it goes.

We could even celebrate with a Zoom margarita.
