What the best sales person in the universe does

"The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine." – John Howard

So, I went live on Facebook earlier tonight to make an announcement… I’ve decided to cycle 700 km across Thailand for charity.

Here’s how I went from a Taylor Swift-like “We are never, ever, ever, ever… getting on a bike together” to Steve Carroll winning the award for best salesperson in the entire universe.

Today’s Prompt of the Day

I'm planning on cycling 700km across thailand over seven days in February 2025. Can you please design me a training plan starting tomorrow. I have a peloton bike and some weights. I want to be prepared for the heat. We will be cycling 100km per day, with a couple of rest days.

If you are training for something, I recommend being as specific as possible with what you want to achieve in the given time frame for ChatGPT to come up with something realistic. If you want to include things like specific numeric goals (like weight, reps, FTP, etc.), you’ll want/need the help of the Wolfram plugin.

As my head is still kind of spinning from "I can’t believe I said yes”, I’ll just leave you today with some semi-wise words from Peloton Instructor Alex Toussaint (who I will be listening to a lot over the next 18 months)!

(PS From a real estate point of view, the real lesson is always following up gently… because you never know when the yes is going to happen!)

Happy Cycling 🚀
