Long distance running: does that sound insufferable? Impossible? Not fun?
For those who haven’t caught the running bug, The Life Marathon: What Creatives Can Learn From Elite Runners from 99percent.com may just do the job and get you off the couch.
Long distance runner Bernie Michalik weighs in on athletic methods that should be adopted even away from the track (we think the advice is relevant to all professionals, not just creatives): setting clear goals, devise a training regime with the help of experts, regularly updating a logbook of efforts and results, and lastly - take a long breath and master the commitment required for a long, gradual route of development.
Michalik’s advice is spot on and highly motivational.
