Like A BicycleSept. 26, 2021
A bicycle is a funny contraption. At rest, it falls over without something to prop it up. Only in motion does it become stable and easy to control. Once the bike is moving, the rider can learn to steer, shift their weight, pedal and brake.
Like a bicycle, some things are easier to keep going, once they start going.
If you’re feeling stuck (writing a book, solving a problem, closing a sale) maybe what’s missing is some motion.
- Get some words on the page, then make them better.
- Ask a colleague to look at your tough problem.
- Ask for the sale a little earlier than you’re ready.
Worst case, it won’t work. But you might find out what’s missing. And isn’t that what you really wanted anyway?
