050 – Great by Choice – Your 20 Mile March 8/3/18

John’s solo additions about the book Great by Choice

In the book it’s two teams race across the south pole but John talked about a simpler example walk across the United States:

Walking 20 miles every single day — rain or shine


Walking for 40-50 miles in good weather — fewer miles on bad days

Other points from the book:

  • Learn to deal with uncertainty
  • Productivity Paranoid
  • Durable and specific procedures
  • It’s not luck and chance – it’s hard work and ambition

You Action: Define your next march

Some things to think about:

  • What are your performance markers, are they clear
  • What are your Self-imposed constraints
  • Is it in your control
  • What’s the proper time-frame — long enough to manage, yet short enough to track progress

So – little different episode but Jolene is fantastic and keeping the podcast going when John’s out so it was his turn to walk the 20 miles
