How To Be The Best

In this episode of the podcast I discuss the idea of effective practice. Everybody loves a winner and we all like to think that people become talented because they are born that way. Sure there is an element of winning the genetic lottery. Research is showing though, that peak performance can be earned. Hard work in isolation is not enough. There needs to be more & science is showing us how.

Who Has Time

Whether it be a chess grand master or a virtuoso musician, there are basic similarities in the way extra-ordinary performance is achieved. This is of particular interest if you are trying to manage your life, never mind have time to become a chess grand master. What good would it serve anyway?

Have a listen as I go into more detail on the techniques of success

I hope you enjoy listening to this podcast as much as I enjoyed the discussion.


This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.

  • I was lost and my soul was broken until I ended up at Crossroads and was introduced to the Twelve Steps. With the help of their excellent staff and amazing support I have recently been clean for 18 months, I could not have done it without them!
