No matter how self-aware we are and how conscious we are in making decisions, we are still unlikely to see all of our blindspots. To help with this, forming a team of employees you trust who are willing to challenge you can help you ensure that honest feedback will be given.

Find opportunities for feedback on how you appear to others. It will help you become aware of behaviours that may interfere with your effectiveness.

The Love Of Cycling

Bicycles made people explore new places, and go for long adventures. Even a bicycle tour across the world was completed by 24-year-old Annie Londonderry in 1894.

The bicycle touched on pop culture and made itself into art, music, literature, and fashion. Young cyclists mingled with each other on the road, and met in distant villages. Writers and philosophers started going on bicycle rides and noting down their thoughts, even writing books on the way.
