In Episode Two, Matt asks you to be courageous enough to let go of some long-held beliefs around performance and what it takes to be successful.  There are no shortcuts or magic pills, but there is a way to create a framework for success in sport, family, and work by shifting your lens and the way that you look at performance in all areas of your time-starved life.

Highlights Include:

  • The Dixon-ary Word of the Week:  Fueling.  Do you know the important difference between fueling and nutrition?
  • How to shift your focus away from simply achieving a certain number of training hours per week and start optimizing the hours you do have available.
  • Advice on how to create a hierarchy of training so that you can identify both key and support sessions.
  • Story of the Week:  John, a successful businessman, athlete and family man who learned how to optimize his available training hours and is now thriving in all areas of his time-starved life.  You can learn more about how Purple Patch Coaching can help you the same way Matt helped John by checking out:  Purple Patch Coaching
