Small steps to start

In a lot of the articles and books I’ve been reading lately about being more productive, creating and tackling just about anything, starting small is the big deal because those little baby steps add up to giant leaps.

One of the questions during my interview for the Global Women Who Ride project was about working on your bike and maintenance, to which my answer was that I do not although I want to. I think you should know how to do even basic maintenance like chain tightening, when to put air in your tires and proper air pressure for your tires.  So today I decided to do that one baby step (and baby step it was!). The battery was out of the bike to charge it and I decided that I would be the one to put it back in. I assumed correctly this was very simple and it was but I already learned 3 things.

1 – I now know how to get the seat off my new bike.
2 – The colors of the wires coordinate with the color marked on the batter for the terminals.
3 – Always connect the positive first.

An voila! Connected properly and running just fine!
