  • Leadership Lessons from “To Be A Runner,” By Martin Dugard Pt. 3

    Examines a life lived through, not around – and how we can live our lives in real-time and actualize through stepping stones and milestones.

    This is the last posit for Upstart: Business and Management for 20-40 Year Old Professionals members in this series by Martin Dugard, who wrote, To Be A Runner: How Racing Up Mountains, Running with the Bulls, or Just Taking on a 5K Makes You a Better Person and The World A Better Place, which examines a life lived through, not around – and how we can live our lives in real-time and actualize through stepping stones and milestones, and when no one is looking – you’ve done something big.

    Dugard uses examples through his experience as a tri-athlete, which can be reconciled into your business portfolio. Dugard say’s:

    1. Keep pushing…..always.

    2. Romans 5:1-5 Suffering produces perseverance, perseverance produces character, and character produces hope – and hope does not disappoint us.

    3. I chose to become the very best version of myself at that moment. Not exceptionally fast, not exceptionally gifted in the directional department, just a guy who wants to see what’s at the top of the mountain – and on the other side. I figure as long as I live each day with that sort of mind-set, whatever random fears I have of settling of letting mediocrity seep into my life will be kept at bay just one more day – even if it means depending upon three simple words for courage when I have none – Keep pushing always.

    4. I quit. Then I unquit.

    5. Either the pain of suffering or the pain of regret.

    Good luck.
