Just like riding a bike

By August 21, 2013Blog, Business

Recently, out riding a new trail with my son; I shared a few things about riding that I’ve experienced mostly through a few visits to the ER. I am reminded by my scars from stitches and bumps in my repaired bones.

1. Look ahead – way ahead and then just a little ahead (repeat)
2. Pick a line
3. Don’t focus on the obstacle (rock?), focus on the trail
4. Check Twice (thrice)
5. Look out for others
6. Evaluate, Adapt, Turn
7. Remember where you came from, you can’t get lost, you can always backup.

I was shocked how this same advice could have helped me as a young entrepreneur.
In truth, it helped me today.

It’s like my shortened, bike riding analogy to the Lean Startup concepts.
Enjoy, be safe.
