How to work like an athlete

As an athletics coach for endurance events, I’m used to planning training loads that include elements of fast work, long slogs, technique work and recovery.

In your business life this would equate to sprinting for deadlines, putting in sustained effort for maintenance, improving your skills and automation, and resting.

Business owners always seem to forget the resting bit but, if it’s good enough for top athletes, it’s good enough for you too.
