There has been a lot of nonsense spoken in the last two weeks about athletes being in the zone at the Olympics.

The truth is that we’re born in the zone.

Whether it was learning to walk or talk, you practiced tirelessly and didn’t get bogged down in failures for one simple reason: you didn’t think about them.

We get out the zone because we think too much.

The widely recognized formula for high performance is:

Performance = capacity – interference

And the primary source of interference is our own thinking.

Unconscious competence and performing to our full capacity requires an empty mind.

Think less, do more.




Live big & love deep.
