[Routine Is The Enemy Of Time. It Makes It Fly By]

My best friend, Jedidiah, quit a job that he loved to ride his bicycle from Oregon to the southern tip of South America.

I joined him for a month and a half to ask him why.

This is what he said…

I’ve met a lot of older people, grandparents, teachers who give me the spiel or, ah… my life went by so fast, just yesterday I was nineteen, or twenty-five and – and now I don’t know where all that time went, I just blinked in and I was eighty.

And I think about that and I’m like what a – what a strange way to be alive. Back in California I had this fear of building this routine in my thirties and suddenly the decade is gone.

And so I promised myself I would do something radically different and do something that scares the crap out of me and see if that changes my bran chemistry.

I have been living on my bicycle for a year now. I’ve biked from Oregon down America, down Mexico, Central Mexico into South America.

People asked me: ‘Why do you live on a bike, why did you quit your job, why are you doing this?”

My answer is this: “The routine is the enemy of time, it makes it fly by.”

When you’re a kid everything is astonishing – everything is new. And so your brain is awake and turned on.

So every passing second your brain is learning something new, learning how the world works, so the muscle of your brain is activated and as you get older and your brain has figured out the patterns of the way the world works: this is how you make money, this is how you graduate school, this is how you get a mortgage, this is how you have kids, have got that on lock-down. I know my car – how to go to work everyday, I know how to check out. All these things.

And once your brain establishes a routine it stops – the alertness goes away – the fascination with the world works.

And I think what travel in general does – it wakes up your brain.

I’ll go into a new country into Panama, into Colombia these countries I’m like scared of cause of the news and I’ll find it beautiful and shocking, every hill I cross over is insanely awesome – my brain is fascinated.

I didn’t know my brain could be so turned on.

I want to be aware of every day I am alive.

And I want to make it to eighty-five and be exhausted because I have been alive and awake every single day.

And that – and I think that’s the duty of being an adult is; when your kid everything’s new so you don’t have to work for it, you’re just astonished by it.

Once you’re an adult, that’s a choice. You choose adventure for your own life.

But it’s not about the bike, it’s about getting out of your routine and that could look like anything.

And that’s what I’m doing here, and that’s why I’m doing this bike trail.

Because I don’t want my days to control me, I don’t want my life; my calendar to be my boss.

I want to control my days.

I want to choose the adventures I go on.

And I want to choose a mind and a soul that’s wide awake.

In a sense, it turns your 100 years on this planet into a thousand.
