Highlights

  • Trainer Dana Cavalea, who spent 14 years as a performance coach for the New York Yankees and now works with business executives, observes that great athletes have a fundamentally different outlook that the rest of us could learn from: "You don't judge the worth of an activity by how it feels in the moment," Cavalea says. "You judge the worth of an activity by how you feel when you are done." They work for the delayed reward. It's a crucial distinction many of us fail to make, especially with negative behaviors that feel awfully good at the time.
  • "The more good behaviors you have, the better things turn out," Brady has remarked. "It's just, do people have the discipline to repeat those behaviors? That's the tricky part."
