Confession Time: I'm a sucker for Olympians. From listening to the stories to watching them compete, I'm completely drawn in, every time. This year, I'm focusing on one aspect: how they practice. These folks don't wait to be motivated or inspired to practice: they just do it. (My apologies to Nike.)

Practice is one of the four principles of productivity. Is there something we can learn from these Olympians that will spur us on to do greater things in our businesses? I think we can. Join me!
