This week’s bitesize brilliance is from rugby league legend Kevin Sinfield. We chatted about the importance of soft stuff: the ability to show our emotions, let people know we care and the power of friendship. This is the intangible stuff that produces the hard currency of silverware. "When it is all over, you don't remember games as well as the friendships and relationships you share."In 2020 Kevin set the challenge to run 7 marathons in 7 days hoping to raise £77,777 in honour of his best Rob Burrow, who wore the No 7 shirt. He raised more than £2.5 million to help his friend’s family and the fight against MND.Listen to his full episode: https://pod.fo/e/b899a. . . . . . . Pre-order copies of our new book, High Performance: Lessons from the best on becoming your best, right here: http://smarturl.it/hv0sdzWant to hear the guys read it?

This week we have an extract from our exclusive members club The High Performance Circle, with former Olympian and business coach, Cath Bishop. Cath believes that we have come to define winning too narrowly - as a moment in time crossing the line, winning a medal, and at a level set by others rather than ourselves. That 'win at all costs' mentality has seen 'the costs' rise to unacceptable levels. Cath talks about the need to redefine winning in a way that helps us to explore our potential better and thrive over the long-term, to ensure that crossing the line first or last is connected to something of lasting value.
