My Cycling Checklist

Aside from training to be a better, faster and stronger rider, I still have a lot to work on. Here is my current cycling checklist:

  • Practice riding clipless. After years of avoiding a clipless pedal system because of a deathly fear of falling… I’ve given in.
  • Learn how to fall gracefully (and take a bow) while riding clipless.
  • Get use to being embarassed when I didn’t clip out in time at a busy intersection.
  • Buy bandaids in bulk at Costco.
  • Gain a better sense of direction (although this is hopeless).
  • Stop being dependant on other people to navigate during rides (hopeless).
  • Find more victims co-workers to go on morning training rides before work and use them to take the lead on the navigatin thing (much better plan).
Clipless pedals & shoes.
I finally made the dive and decided to go clipping “clipless”!

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.
