March’s Recommended Reading

I like to share ideas and content that have been powerful or useful in my career and life in general.  Today I’ll share one of my favorites – it’s a blog by a former private equity guy turned elite triathlete turned coach and blogger, Gordo Byrn.   Check out his blog here.

To get you started, here are two of my favorite recent posts.

Behavior not Protocol – I’ve always told athletes “the workout you’ll do is always better than the one you won’t do”.  Too many folks obsess on the details of this plan or that plan, but they won’t execute either plan consistently, so it really doesn’t matter.  Byrn elaborates on this more eloquently than I can.

The Freedom of Not Knowing – Selective ignorance is a valuable thing.  There are a lot of things I choose not to be informed on, because they just don’t impact my top priorities in life.   At best they are time sinks, at worst they are a cause for anxiety and unnecessary emotional arousal (this was a big factor in my decision to delete my Facebook account earlier this year).

Byrn also writes a lot about financial planning for families, and his own experiences as a father.  If you are looking for a blog to add to your regular reading list, you should consider his.
