Most Saturday's I take a bicycle ride on the same stretch of road. The last few times I have been passed by the same rider and always unexpectedly. This last time I learned a few things. He
* is a much better cyclist than I am
* pedals at a higher cadence
* doesn't seem to struggle, but just drop to a smaller gear and keep pedaling
* looks like he is having fun
Those are the things I learned observing the cyclist and here is how I realize I can apply that observation to other areas of my life.
1. someone is always going to be better than I am
2. I can and should strive to find people who are better than I and observe.
3. Through observation I can find areas that I can correct.
4. I must be willing to implement new methods.
5. Through observation I might realize the way I am doing things are the most efficient.
6. I am not called, in any aspect of my life to be the best (greatest) but strive for greatness (excellence)
