On our ride yesterday my two teenage daughters kicked my butt.
(as they start to pull away from me)
2 hours of amazing riding with 30 minutes of butt kicking mixed in as I tried to keep up with them during their 10 minute hard intervals.
I can’t, they’re just too fast.
If we were riding on dirt trails it might be slightly different just because I’m a better technical rider than they are. I practice my skills.
But we weren’t on dirt trails because it was raining! We rode up American Fork canyon instead. It’s a beautiful ride…just not as beautiful if your heart rate is through the roof and your legs are screaming at you to stop and you’re still falling behind.
In business I sometimes feel like this too.
I just can’t keep up with social media. Fortunately I have people on my team who do.
I’m not very good at programming anymore. But I have programmers who are good.
I’m terrible with design…but designers aren’t that hard to find in the Philippines.
Doing customer support or data entry I feel like I’m drowning. Amazing OFS take care of these things for me.
At least in business I can manage other people doing the work…unlike on my bike.
You can manage people doing the work in your business too. My book The Outsourcing Lever will help you be a better manager.
