In episode 5,  I tell about my struggles to deal with my “Be Good” mindset as I try to learn to wheelie and some of the strategies I’ve started using to get more consistent with a “Get Better” mindset.

In Episode 4, I go deeper into the ‘Be Good’ vs. ‘Get Better’ mindset that I introduced in episode 3. It’s particularly relevant to those times when we either hit a plateau developing a skill or even regress. I include audio clips from my interviews with a 60-year-old mountain biker named Kristin and my 6-year-old granddaughter Kaya. They’ve both gotten stuck, so Kaya sticks to drawing stuff she is already good at, and Kristin sticks to what she’s good at — climbing and going fast downhill. I can relate to their struggles, so you’ll hear stories of my own.

In Episode 3, I delve into the importance of paying attention to the mindset we have when we’ve decided to improve our mountain bike riding skills. How we think about trying to improve can change the way we go about it. I sprinkle a few mindset-related stories from my own life throughout the episode and invite you, the listener, to consider 3 homework assignments.

And hey. Thanks for checking out the show. I hope you’ll consider becoming a regular listener. 

This first episode is an overview of the show. I explain its focus on mountain bike practicing-related skills and techniques and why that’s different from mountain bike riding-related skills and techniques. We all know that it takes practice to improve. But most of us don’t realize that how we practice makes a big difference. I also explain why I think my approach to the show makes it unique. And it ends with a trick question about muscle memory, featuring my 6-year-old granddaughter Ava.
