I JUST FINISHED THIS VERY USEFUL BOOK, it was agitating and illuminating right up to the end... when it went against everything I know about behavior. I'm not a doctor, but I to play one at PEDALindustries from time to time.
Book: Willpower is a super power.
Diesel: Willpower is useless, environment is the super power.
... we're heading into late January and most people have already been derailed from the New Year's resolutions...
Maybe if they had a few structures in place to support their goals they'd have a chance.
For example, and this is just me, if my goal is to be fast on my bike here are a few things that matter:
If there's ice-cream within 100 yards, I'm eating it. Therefore, no ice-cream in the house.
By now most of you know I'm not a dosomeintervals guy, I'm a ridewithpeoplewhoarefaster guy... that's why I do our Tuesday morning "social" ride, because they beat the heck out of me every week... a beating I could never self-administer.
I rest every Sunday, and I've been doing it for decades... consequently, training is not on my calendar and none of my pals even try to invite me.
Willpower is useless.
No one can babysit a cup cake without eventually devouring it.
Toss the cupcakes.
I'm guessing that's partly why y'all read the daily Diesel, because it reinforces your cycling environment.
One question I have is, are you ready to up your environment? If you are, click here...
