Going Fast at 75 AND Still Alive!

I minimize my capacity and capability and it continued over the last two days! I visited the Ron Fellows Corvette Driving School to determine how fast I could drive a new Corvette on a "road course." Wow, what a challenge!

Still Going Fast at 75 AND Still Alive!


I found myself playing defense rather than offence, many times the story of my life. Is that wrong? Absolutely not. I performed at a high level...the car performed at a very high level and I surprised myself with my reflexes and aggression/competitiveness AND I arrived back home very healthy.

What if I had a "do over?" That's an interesting question. In fact, that question applies to all of my life.

For the most part, I don't want/need a "do over." Life has been very good to me and I have everything I want. At the same time, I know there are some days that I could have had more optimistic thoughts than cautionary thoughts. This weekend was one of those times. Although I exceeded 100 MPH, I could have taken a bigger risk on several hairpin turns. 20-20 hindsight is always distorted!

What about you?

How are you maximizing your capacity and capability?

How optimistic are you?

How are your actions showing defense or offence?

What "do overs" are you hoping for?

Be careful with 20-20 hindsight! You may be living life perfectly!
