Chic Cyclists Are Good Employees
I don't know if that's true or not, but I don't see why it wouldn't be. I certainly hope my prospective employer holds such a belief. Today, I was asked during a job interview about what I like to do in my spare time. I told her that I aspire to be a chic cyclist: no spandex, no lycra. Just riding a bike, trying to look as cute as possible, taking in the sights during the ride. She laughed and nodded her head in agreement with me. Maybe, I have sown a seed in my prospective boss! Perhaps, as it germinates, she will think of me with gratitude and hire me! That's my best case scenario-- I really want the job! I also happened to notice on my way there the nearby MARTA station. I planned my likely route there in my head. That's an example of positive thinking isn't it-- imagining your bike route to the train station from, what you hope to be, your future workplace?
