It’s not every day you get to chew the fat with a two-time Olympian, who’s also a rugby, kick boxing, motorcross and boxing champion.
I was definitely a bit starstruck interviewing my childhood hero Derek Redmond.
In this video, Derek shares his approach which is a great mantra for leadership and for life:
– Put your effort into things you can control (like training/skills/preparation)
– Don’t worry about the things you can’t control (like outcomes/promotion/annual targets)
– Keep an optimistic mindset to stay resilient in the face of setbacks
You can see why he aces everything he tries. Thankfully he’s rubbish at golf, but I doubt that will be for long.
