How often do you or your kids simply do something without thinking about it. It can be anything. Cleaning a room, reading a book, doing your shopping, going on a bike ride.
Have you thought about what you are doing. Am I doing it correctly, have I got all the information I need, have I forgotten anything, is there anything else that I should be doing/bringing/thinking about.
Case in point .. my bike riding.
I was always forgetting something. Gloves. Water bottle. Keys. Reflective bag cover for my backpack.
I was getting sore shoulders from the shock of riding over the bumps on the path I take to work.
I kept on riding, kept on forgetting things, my shoulder ache never seemed to clear up.
Then one day I stopped at the front door of my house and thought "enough". I will not forget stuff again. I will not tolerate a sore shoulder anymore.
So I did two things. Made a commitment that as I leave the house I stop and think about all the things I should have with me on the ride. Very simple. But very effective. I have not forgetten anything in months. I still stop every single day and think about my riding checklist.
I also went on youtube and researched shoulder soreness for bike riders. Turns out the position of my arms was too stiff, I was carrying too much tension in my shoulders. So I took some pointers and now I ride with my arms slightly more bent, slightly more relaxed, and my torso takes some of the tension that my shoulders used to take. Shoulder soreness gone.
All because I had an 'aha' moment and decided to think about what I was doing.
Can you apply this to something, anything, today. Right now.
