New Year, New Targets

The new year brings with it the opportunity to start afresh. New goals, resolutions, targets for the year, call them what you will, we all have them.  We wanted to share a few resources with you that could help.

If it’s challenging yourself to go to the gym everyday this podcast from Jessica Alexander, US Olympic skateboarding team physical trainer is really insightful into the world of training, skateboarding, movement and meditation.

Or if you're ready to make a positive impact on the environment by commuting by bike, we've got you covered with resources to help you make the switch. And if you're in need of a little inspiration, check out these two guys who are biking and skiing back across the Balkan Mountains using nothing but their own muscle power. They're proof that anything is possible when we set our minds to it. So let's embrace the power of the bike and make a difference in the world, one pedal stroke at a time.

And if this all sounds like a lot of work and its literally just getting the year back up and running this quote from William McRaven, US Navy Admiral is quite apt for the dark days of winter.

“If you make your bed everyday it will give you a small sense of achievement and encourage you to take on another task and another and at the end of the day you’ll look back and realize all the things you achieved and in fact to achieve any goal it’s the little things that matter.”
