The Joy of the Trail

There are many great outdoor activities for people to enjoy, and one of the most popular communities out there is that of mountain biking. One thing that people love about non-biking is the aspect of getting out to the wilderness and having a pleasurable experience. There are those that argue that mountain biking takes more physical and mental effort can road biking. It takes a lot of concentration to write out on the trail and a tremendous amount of balance to navigate some of the most difficult trails that are out there. When you compare it to road biking, mountain biking has a lot of advantages. The air up and out among the trails is very clean for one, and you are not sharing the road with vehicles that are spewing fumes. There is also the aspect of not having to share the road with vehicles when compared to road biking.

We have all passed bikers on the side of the road as we travel somewhere and if you put yourself in the position of the biker who has experienced tons of steel hurtling down the road at freeway speeds just inches away from their handlebars, then this advantage becomes pretty obvious. Non-biking also offers quite a bit of solitude and peacefulness. The trails lead to remote and peaceful places where one can commune with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. Connor Baldwin is a mountain bike rider that has written a long some of the best courses that cover the entire Pacific Northwest.

Connor Baldwin – Family Time is the Best Time

Busy professionals might find a bit of a challenge in balancing their personal time with their families along with their professional careers. It is an ideal situation that is elusive to many, but one thing that is undoubtedly true is the ability to make choices that will allow individual to stay connected to their community, family and work situations at the same time. One of the unfortunate narratives when it comes to balancing family time against work time is that of what some people consider to be a good provider.

For these people in this position, they have reconciled their uneven work situation which is kept in the balance of career concerns versus time spent with their children. There is some justification in this, especially among those that grew up in a financially challenged environment themselves as they feel that the ability to enjoy certain finer things in life and in some cases a constant roof over their heads is worth the time spent focused on a career.

One key to this puzzle is to begin with a definition of what success in a career looks like to the individual. This requires some definition and evaluation of commitment going into a new job, a work evaluation or a new project. There are many ways to balance things out and in most cases all it takes is a simple prioritization of work principles to get a good picture of what it will take to balance out the priorities in life with those of the career. Is a task that can be truly challenging and for Connor Baldwin, it was never a question for him to consider that his family was as important as his career. He has always balanced both of these throughout his life.
