He Who Hesitates is a Damned Fool
I’d have to try really hard to find some sort of connection between the legendary actress, May West, and cycling….but because I love this quote of hers so much I’m going to do my best to make it happen. (Oh, and I’ve decided to take off the “Make it Happen Monday” part off the title. By now you should all know that Monday’s post is always a motivational one to kick off your week).
It’s such a simple quote, but it is also very powerful and just seems to hit me right between the eyes. The message really applies to anything in life, but I wanted to use it today in two different cycling scenarios:
Hesitation #1 – If you’ve been thinking of starting up a fitness program using the bike as your source of cardio, but haven’t yet begun….what are you waiting for? Anyone living on this side of the World currently has some sweet summer weather conditions and it’s the perfect time to jump on a bike and get your body in motion. The weather is beautiful and the roads are just waiting for your two wheels to roll down them. “He who hesitates is a damned fool”.
Hesitation #2 – This one’s for all our followers who race at any type of level. When you’re out on the road competing against your fellow riders, the time is going to come when you get the feeling of attacking. When that moment overcomes you….strike. Don’t think about it or wait for the feeling to sink in. Grind those gears and make it happen. “He who hesitates is a damned fool”.
