Alignment with Self - Part 1
This video is interesting to me, for several reasons. The first kid impresses me, because he's being himself. He's doing what a real mountain biker would do, which is plan and calculate and "feel" his next move. He's careful. He's deliberate. He's bringing a lot of thought into what he does. I appreciate that. It's not about whether he makes it or not. We all make mistakes from time to time, but he was being himself.
The second guy is good too, and even though he "makes" it, it's not quite as meaningful for me as the first kid. I could watch that first kid for hours. It's like watching an artist work. The second guy is impressive, don't get me wrong. It's just not my personal preference of style. I have a right to my preferences.
