Pat Sherwood sets off on a 16-country motorcycle tour and discovers the secret to finding spare time.
They say that time is money. They also say that money is power. If that’s the case, then by my reckoning, time equals power.
I’m actually talking about what you need to live the life you dream about.
As I write this, Ian Wittenber and I are on Day 30 of a 100-day motorcycle odyssey through 16 countries. The purpose is to explore the CrossFit community in Latin America while having the kickass adventure of a lifetime.
As it turns out, having a mud-splattered motorcycle fully loaded with cases and waterproof bags is one hell of a conversation starter. When I tell people we are riding to Chile in South America, there is usually a pause while my response is processed.
And they always respond with the same thing: “Wow, I always wanted to do something like that, but I just don’t have the time.”
This common reply has hit me harder than anything else.
