If you choose to accept the Mission, it is to define Enough.
What do you REALLY want? You can find out on a bicycle.
We mistake “More” for what we want.
You can’t be happy when you want “More.”
More is not a place or a number. It’s asking for failure.
Instead of MORE, you have to define ENOUGH.
Ride a bike to define enough.
Is it enough to be happy on a bike ride?
If yes, then start thinking about what else you want. But be specific. More is not specific.
Examples of MORE:
- Make more money.
- Lose more weight.
- Have more friends.
- Have a bigger house.
- Spend more time with my friends.
These statements are terrorists.
They make you think you are accomplishing something by setting ‘goals.’
More is not a goal. You can’t get there.
We must define enough. To do that, you have to have clarity.
A bicycle is a clarity machine.
Go ride bikes and come back with clarity.
Then define enough:
- Make $2,000 extra monthly, so I can start working on my art project twice weekly.
- Journal once a day for 30 days about what would make me happier.
- Step One: Find a bike, make it safe, and go for a ride.
- Step Two: Get to “Enough.” How? Try riding down a hill going slightly too fast…
- Step Three: Reevaluate your choices and adjust based on your mind-bending ride downhill.
- Mission Accomplished: When your behavior changes, realize Enough is another way to say NOW.
Homework: Come back from your next ride with two ideas you will change about how you manage “Enough.”
