“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Theodore Geisel (Dr. Suess)
After hearing from my employees and readers over the last several years commenting on my blog, it’s time to finally summarize the best of the best blog posts in one eBook. These 70 short chapters will highlight the most popular blogs from the last 12 years. The most important component is that this summary will add value to your life and business. If you implement one of the ideas, it might be life changing just as it has been for our family, friends, colleagues and team members.
The one trait that can have immediate impact on your business and personal life is building in your mind, the drive of continuous persistence. As we have all heard, the mind can accomplish extraordinary things. Close the loop by building persistence into your daily routine.
As we approach the year-end ultra triathlon-racing season with DECAMANUSA (along with all the other major ultra endurance events), one thing we can guarantee that will happen, is DRAMA. Each athlete deals with adversity and corresponding DRAMA differently, but make sure your event does not end like a Greek tragedy.
As a follow up to the Quintuple Iron training tips many of you have asked for specific advice related to sleep strategies for the race. The following guidelines might assist with your race planning.
To all our quintuple athletes for DECAMAN USA, here are some race tips and ideas!
How is your year coming along with regards to your top line revenue? If you are a business owner or sales professional and your sales are dragging, consider what questions you are asking. More important, have you perfected the “pause” while listening.
As we roll into the fall here in the US, it’s always of time for the last push toward year end with the kids back in school, vacations ending and a refocus of getting business results finalized before year end. Something you might notice in your community is that with everyone back to the normal routine (post vacation/summer) many individuals are walking their pups, biking (more concentrated rush hour traffic) and enjoying the cooler fall weather outside.
The challenges in the 1x10 and 1x5 DECA have well been documented by athletes over the years that have finished this event. The format of one Ironman per day with a 24 hour time cutoff on the surface does not sound that bad.
It’s been two weeks since the finish of one of the hardest endurance events in my career – The Tour Divide and its finally starting to sink in. I have reflected of the month long journey and the following highlights might offer some insights to the event if you are considering it in the future. As many of you know, I don’t write detailed race reports, but shorter summaries of the learning lessons so you can use some ideas and of course not make the same mistakes as me! I will never forget this brutal event as it was my 3rd 30-day endurance race (Triple DECA Ironman, Trans Am and Tour Divide) and it offered plenty of surprises and challenges along the way.
