The Think Better Newsletter is a short weekly email with tips on how to think better about your training, both your formal training program and the Hidden Training Program. It expands on and branches out from the topics covered within the book, to help you think strategically about specific areas of your life.
I keep it simple. It's 1 idea, 1 system, and 1 question, in 1 email per week. It's less than 5 minutes start to finish.
- The idea covers a story, framework, or concept where we can think better.
- The system gives a simple strategy for getting better results.
- The question gives you one thing to think about for the next week.
Read the newsletter that coaches and athletes just like you are using to think better, train better, and make the leap!
And as a special bonus, when you sign up you get Chapter One: What is a "Leap"?** for FREE!
** Multiple readers--both runners and non-runners alike--have told me that this single chapter fundamentally changed how they thought about improvement. I expect it will do the same for you.
AND you get exclusive access to my monthly progress reports detailing my sales, my marketing efforts, what's working and what isn't on this self-publishing journey. If you've ever considered writing a book--and you should, we all have at least one in us!--then this will give you some insight into what my journey looks like.
