Dang: I wish I’d written this: Reposting here, a post on @Medium yesterday by @TheDoLectures: Writer @DavidHieatt. (As if you didn’t know ;-)
------------------------------------------------------- How to get the strength to leave a salary:

1, Fear regret more than change.

2, Embrace uncertainty.

3, Become your own role model.

4, Learn to spend less than you earn.

5, Save enough to give you 6 months of safety.

6, Remember this, being scared equals being alive.

7, Vulnerability is a strength.

8, There is never a right time. Damn.

9, Timing is 20%. The rest is psychology.

10, You know enough. Put what you know into practice.

11, Strategy is direction. Hustle is speed. Don’t confuse the two.

12, You can tell yourself you can’t. Or you can tell yourself you can. You know which one ends better.

13, The clock is ticking. Can you hear it?

14, Fear failure to start more than failure to succeed.

15, Before you can convince others, convince yourself.

16, You will have to raise your standards. Then maintain them.

17, Comfort zones kill.

18, Exercise gets you ready for each day.

19, Emotionally fit. Physically fit. Financially fit. These three will determine your success.

20, Find your love. Then get good at it.

21, The quality of your questions will change your life.

22, Master worry. To do your best work, you will have to care the most and at the same time, care the least.

23, Master time. It’s time to focus. Switch the Wi-Fi off for 3 hours a day.

24, Master you. If you can do that, nothing can stop you.

25, Life is short. Regrets are long.

One of the most amazing journeys you will make in your life, is to go from where you are now to where you could be.

She's back, and it looks like she's been wielding the Opinel, like the female lead in a Michael Bay movie amok in some unsuspecting country lane:

Out on the bike, nearing home I came across this crazy woman in the woods, camo'd out in Green,  pretending to be a tree: An everyday story of countryfolk in Cornwall: @caroldcoulter walking #TobyTheTerrier:- Saw her a mile off. (And 25 years ago- lucky me.)

OK so I'm not an @omata team rider. Nor a racing stud like @tydeman.newman But. I am now rocking a great team cap on the Trail ;- Beautifully made and engineered (of course). Big thanks and S/O to @john_rhys_newman & the rest of the @omata crew. Yew!

I am so busted: Took #TobyTheTerrier for his walkies tonight. Hot day. Before I went out, filled an @homeofmillican we keep in fridge with some cider for when I got back. (We usually keep it filled with water in fridge to grab before bike/run duty.) : I get home - Millican full of cider nowhere to be found in fridge: @caroldcoulter has gone to her Pilates class....with what she thinks is Millican full of refreshing cold water...only tonite it isn't. Fair play to the old girl, she got back from workout without a hint of recrimination and I think, hint of a smile on her face.
