This past weekend I was out riding my bike and I began thinking about the upcoming Tour de France and Lance Armstrong’s comeback...with 3500 miles in 21 days...the Tour de France is recognized as the toughest race in the world...
The winner of Tour de France is not determined by the racer who can ride the fastest time trial on flat terrain or speed along the downhill stretches. The winner of the race is found in the steep mountains of French Alps and Pyrenees...it is that special rider who can pull away from the pack when he is faced with these steep hill climbs. The hills, (where the riders are generally riding their slowest), are the places where the most time is gained or lost during this race....where many of the riders fail...and where the race is generally won or lost.
Today, the electronics and automotive industries are facing some incredibly steep hills...so steep in fact, that many companies and/or people who won’t make it...but those who attack these hills and try to break away from the pack are the ones who will make the biggest gains and win this race...
Ask yourself...I am attacking the hills trying to distance myself from the pack...or am I just trying to finish?
Thank you so much for your continued support of OptiFuse as we try to climb the mountains in front of us...
