Recently I was involved in an incredible project. A friend thought it would be a good idea to ride from Cape Reinga to Bluff (for all you non NZ readers - that's the top of our country to the bottom) 2100km odd - in a time that beat the current record of 4 days 17 hours and 40 minutes. I know, its bonkers - and he not only wanted to break the record he wanted to raise money for kids-
I like this word - a lot. It grounds me when I am racing, it reminds me when I get overwhelmed and it guides me when I am teaching.
In honour of Dr Seuss's birthday I am going to borrow one of his (many) fabulous quotes
'Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple'
Often I wrangle with questions around my business, like which direction to go in, am I targeting the right people, following dead ends and knotted lines, when the answer so often lies in simplicity. Simplicity is hard.
