Mark Beaumont, record-breaking cyclist who peddled his way around the world in less than 80 days joins us to discuss perseverance- among other things. He notes in passing, early on in the conversation that he had broken bones for most of the trip. But his focus in the interview- as it was then- was to accomplish the ultimate goal. And the ultimate goal was accomplished by achieving the daily goal every day. His focus was on cycling an average of 240 miles each day. He shattered his original record by 44 days, meaning the ultimate goal wasn't about beating the number- it was optimizing his human output.
