It always amazes me how so many sports while so different still have so much in common.
My brother in law who owns a awesome Crossfit Gym in East Texas posted this neat story about a cycling coach who used the concept of aggregation of marginal gains to improve his teams performance to win the Tour de Frances, 3 times in a row.
You can find the whole original post here and you really need to go check it out.
I was taught this approach by my very wise mother from day one.
She taught me that if you just improve 1% per day at end of 100 days you will have improved 100%.
This simple approach of small but steady gain can actually be applied to all aspects of our lives.
and I think I am going to start right now. :)
