I only gave myself one task for today:

ride my bike to the University of Richmond from Virginia Commonwealth University then back.

That’s it, one thing. It’s a total of 10 miles, 30ish-40 minute ride.

1 task.

Just, do, it.

Only one thing.

Ride to UofR then back home.

And I did.


I used to ride this route every morning during the Spring and Early Summer of 2018; it’s the first thing I did every day.

I am not competing in Road Cycling, heck, I am a competitive powerlifter actually.

But the significance of the ride is this:

I did it. Now, let’s complete what I have to do next.

Does that make any sense? If it doesn’t, ride for 10 miles at your own pace (riding at your own pace is important, 2nd only to completing the ride itself).

Then observe how you behave after it’s complete, you’ll notice that everything that your mind has set itself to do that day has already been completed before you even start on it.

Just do it, and the things you want to do will get done.

Ride your life like it’s your bike.

With Love and Sincerity,

I am a future 7-time Oscar Winner, better known for my psycho-interpretation films, but I'll retire relatively young, only to continue writing screenplays in a small coastal village in Colombia. I'll allow Directors and Producers to film and produce my post-retirement stories after I pass away. In my will, the royalties will be given to the Mental Health Foundation, which will provide them with just enough money and resources to discover the cure for Alzheimer's. I'll continue winning Oscars after my death, but I will not know how many because it's past my time.
