NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP? Implored Sir Winston. So does Gladwell when he says it takes 10,000 hours to be great at something.
If I rode 10 hours a week 50 weeks a year, it would take 20 years to be a great bike rider.
But, it's not just riding.
I think the time spent working on my bike counts.
As does the time watching a race unfold.
Throw in the core work and stretching and yoga too.
It all adds up.
Every day, a little better. A little closer.
After 20 years, I'm not great... but,
I'm pretty damn close
to the best I can be
and that's the point of any endeavor.
