I’m not going to answer that in just one post. Nor could I comprehensively answer it over the internet. But, it might be useful to say that this article definitely resonated with me, but with caveats. I’m not a regular Huffington Post reader, but I saw this pop up as it relates to cycling, and ways of thinking: both keen interests of mine.
Frankly, I have many friends I would consider to be “black or white” type folks with little tolerance for “grey areas”. And they’re very effective people. And, well, I think I’m moderately effective as well (some things more than others, surely). My contention: I don’t think its accurate to claim “the world needs less/more black/white thinking.” Rather, the world works fairly well because we have a diverse approach to thinking.
Now, on to the caveats… well, I may mention those as time goes on.
Good God, I hope writing about racing/training experiences is more interesting than this rambling.
