LIVE LIKE YOU COMPETE
When we have something that we’re competing for, it pushes us.
When you go about live, living and preparing the same way that you would when you have everything on the line. What kind of things could you accomplish?
When I compete, everything gets dialled in; there isn’t a minute that goes by that isn’t accounted for. We dial everything in – let’s live and prepare for life the same way we would for competition.
