".....On this particular day in the gym, there was a coach visiting who had worked with thousands of athletes over his long career, including some nationally-ranked athletes and Olympians.I had just finished my workout when I asked him, “What’s the difference between the best athletes and everyone else.

That piece of advice surprised me because it’s a different way of thinking about work ethic....."
