The Doorstep Mile - Alastair Humphreys - January 2020
The first step in any venture is always the hardest, it's the 'Doorstep Mile'.
The Doorstep Mile from Alastair Humphreys will reveal why you want to change direction, what’s stopping you, and how to build an adventurous spirit into your busy daily life.
Don’t yearn for the adventure of a lifetime. Begin a lifetime of living adventurously. What would your future self advise you to do? What would you do if you could not fail? Is your to-do list urgent or important? You will never simultaneously have enough time, money and mojo. There are opportunities for adventure in your daily 5-to-9.
The hardest challenge is getting out the front door and beginning: the Doorstep Mile.
