Are You Making Progress or Excuses?? And a Gran Fondo in Beverly Hills

As you already know... You can either make progress or make excuses... But you cannot do both. Excuses keep you where you are with no hopes of getting out while progress takes you everywhere you want to go! Excuses are the nail in the coffin of dead dreams while progress is the seed that blossoms to a grand oak tree!

When you reach the top, keep climbing

Today's blog title is from an old Proverb. You have to begin to do your absolute best in everything you do and when you think you've made it, you need to keep working hard because greater returns come to those who put in that extra effort.

It is a known fact that most people never truly reach their goals because they only do just enough to try to reach them!  What most people don't realize is that in order to accomplish anything in life they must be willing to go the extra mile!  Doing just enough will win some victories but not enough to make winning a habit!  For something to become a habit, it is well known that you have to repeat that habit for a minimum of 20 days for behavior change to take affect.

Getting Back to Work! And a new Gran Fondo Giro d'Italia

My apologies for about being out of the loop the past three weeks. There was this event called the Tour de France that was occupying my attention! Being in California, I would record the each day's stage and then watch it throughout the day, sometimes catching the finish in the evening after starting in the morning! This was certainly a tour with lots of drama. There were times when I thought that Froome was going to lose the lead the next stage because his team looked weak. And then, boom, they bounce back. What I most enjoyed about this year's Tour was the emergence of a new group of fresh faces, untarnished by the past 10 to 15 years of drug use, who give us hope for some exciting races in the years ahead.
