Thanks to Adam Drummond for sending me this video to follow… Three and a half minutes of action packed fun.
I think this bike run is a great analogy for business. The guy racing through the obstacle course (who appropriately seems to be wearing a pin striped suit) is always looking forward.
He goes through ups and downs. At a time he even gets off course, but at no stage does he look backwards, he just gets back on course and continues on. Were he to look backwards he’d almost definitely crash.
There’s even a very difficult obstacle (with 4 legs) in his way at one point, but he continues onward, finding a way over it. At no point does he stop his forward momentum.
Too often, it’s easy to have an off course moment, or an obstacle that makes you stop or look backwards. Forward momentum with constant adjustments works for our pin striped racer… could it work for you too?
