A great book about preparing to win. How many of us actually prepare to win in business, rather than just expecting or hoping to it?
An Olympic gold medal is a crazy thing to want, and a crazy thing to work towards. The odds - even if you are a world-class athlete - are stacked against you. I discovered that the only way to reach our crazy goal was with concrete, everyday habits. Ben Hunt-Davis Inspired by Ben Hunt-Davis’s journey to Olympic gold in the men’s Rowing Eight at Sydney 2000, Will It Make The Boat Go Faster tells his story of the process that won him that medal. It’s a tale of talent, supremely focused preparation and hard work. What won the race? Not just the combination of these elements, but the way in which these elements were made to work together. It’s about daily actions and thought processes, setting goals and then stretching them.
