I got this book and read it years ago but didn’t create a Note because, frankly, it was a little too, shall we say, ruthlessly intense. (Laughing.)
It was fun to reread it with a fresh perspective. It’s STILL super intense and packed with more f-bombs than your normal self-help book (hah) and I think there’s a slightly more Optimized way to approach some of the themes in the book, but I figured it was time to share some of my favorite gems. And, here we are.
Tim Grover was Michael Jordan’s trainer and, basically, his mental toughness coach. Kobe Bryant’s as well. And Dwayne Wade’s. And… Well, a ton of other elite athletes.
He’s one of the world’s top mental toughness coaches and this book is, as per the sub-title, a manual on how to go “From Good to Great to Unstoppable.”
In many ways, it reminds me of Jordan Peterson’s Super intense. No nonsense. Tough love. If that sounds like fun, I think you’ll enjoy the book as much as I did. (.)
It’s packed with Big Ideas. I’m excited to share some of my favorites that we can apply to the ultimate game of life: Becoming eudaimōns and expressing the ABSOLUTE (!) BEST version of ourselves moment to moment to moment.
Relentlessly, of course.
