"State maps"


August 25, 2009...

I am three days away from pedaling a bike through my fifth state. I'm feeling pretty good physically.

Thank goodness.

Before I started riding on July 21, I rarely looked at a big United States map. I preferred breaking the trip down into a final route by looking at individual state maps.

I did this so as to NOT overwhelm my thinking with just how B-I-G the U.S. really is. I didn't want to give my brain ammunition to bail on the goal.

And that's how big goals get achieved. One small step...one state map...and one pedal stroke at a time.

Don't let the vision of your big goal haunt you.

Break it down. "State" by "state."
