I’m currently taking Seth Godin’s class on podcasts.

I’m wrapping up a meeting on Wednesday morning when my phone buzzed. A text message flash across the screen.

Late last week, word started to spread that, for a limited time, Serbia was inoculating all comers. The car park at the main vaccination centre in Belgrade quickly filled with vehicles sporting number plates from across the former Yugoslavia and beyond. Bosnian and Montenegrin…

We can go further than we might even think possible when we begin. Deliberate practice creates new physical and mental capabilities—it doesn’t just leverage existing ones. The more we engage in deliberate practice, the greater our capabilities become. Our minds and bodies are far more…
