Excerpts from Tim Ferriss’s interview with former Olympic national team gymnastics coach Christopher Sommer, he is world-renowned for building his athletes into some of the fiercest competitors on the planet. I highly recommend you give this podcast a gander:
“To be successful at that level you have to have the same things: you have to be consistent, you have to master the basics, you have to be patient.”
“Think clear, plan ahead, and be willing to work.”
“If you win the morning you’ve won the day.”
“I’ve been impressed at how many people who are successful in their field who do not eat breakfast.”
There are further gems inside the podcast, these are quick quotations I took down lest I forget them.
