Working 80+ hours a week whilst snatching only 3-4 hours sleep, fuelled by an insatiable desire to hit revenue targets is only going to end up one way – burnout! That’s what happened to this episode’s guest, Glenn Tranter.
In 2006 Glenn suffered a mental shut-down. No longer able to cope with the demands he was placing on his body, he was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. As it turns out, giving a label to the condition may have helped on an intellectual level, but not necessarily helpful in combating the underlying cause of his condition; the relentless desire to win. Perhaps at all costs!
Thankfully, and in part due to an enigmatic encounter with a Vietnamese monk, Glenn found a way out of his personal nadir to emerge as a coach now focused on helping others find ways to achieve their outcomes without the personal cost. In this episode we explore basketball, hustle, ego and mindfulness. Oh…and you’ll also find out what the monk said!
