The past week featured three 10-plus hour days of driving as I raced across the country to meet the deadline to of being in Scranton PA to kick-off the Tour de Scranton Bike Ride and mark the official beginning of the 100Pedals Campaign. As I have been behind the wheel for much of this week, I have failed to do much writing. However, I did have the opportunity to record some thoughts while driving.
I was thrilled to have passed through Wytheville VA on this trip. This area has particular meaning to me as the place where I first consciously experienced peace in my life. I have such clear memories of that moment, that I visit this place often in my mind as part of my 100Pedals exercises.
The following link is a recording of the story and the lessons from and to this experience: Revisiting Peace.
This lesson and this process is one of the most critical components of the 100Pedals process. It is from a place of peace that we make our best conscious and productive decisions. While life comes at us hard and fast, taking that moment to detach, reflect and respond is the defining difference between clear and focused action and reactive outcomes.
