Today, we are about one week into the Tour De France. For 21 days these bikers will ride over 2,200 miles through the mountains, hills, and flat lands of France.
I used to wonder why someone would want to ride over 100 miles a day for three-weeks straight, including 6 mountain stages with 5 high-altitude finishes.
That was until I got a little glimpse into how much these guys love to ride. Really. They love it.
And, when you are doing something you love, you’re usually willing to do something crazy.
You may love your job. Or your job may be a way to support you or those you love. Either way, take a step back and think about something you love outside of work.
Maybe it’s hiking or running. Maybe it’s writing or cooking. Maybe it’s exploring a new city, trying some new, crazy food or going shopping with your teenage daughter.
Whatever it is, this week, we at Coaching Right Now encourage you to do that thing you love for an hour.
When you are able to take a step back from the routines of life and enjoy what you are doing for a moment, it gives you a fresh start to keep pushing through the day-to-day.
