Lessons from James Cracknell Authentically being yourself creates both happiness and achievement. This is what Rob personally thinks success is about, we are all born with different strength and weaknesses, it is what makes people and life so interesting, as well as challenging. Key to all of this is the understanding that you too have your own strengths and weaknesses and that there are things you have strong bias towards.
This week Rob speaks about an interview he listened to on BBC Radio 4 with world class sportsman James Cracknell. A number of years ago James suffered a brain injury whilst cycling in the USA, this created many changes in James and impacted his life in ways he had never even imagined, including his personality.

The more you try and understand others the more successful your life will become.
James believes that to become world class at something in sport you have to develop characteristics that are in direct opposition to being successful in the of rest life. What he means is that if you want to get to the top in sport, you have to develop characteristics like selfishness, one track mindedness and putting yourself first in every respect.
Something Rob teaches is that when you are going onto the pitch you have to put a &lsquo;game face on&rsquo; but that it&rsquo;s important to remember when you come off the pitch that you need to take on attributes that serve you in the rest of the world, such as empathy and understanding. You have to understand what hat to have on.
When speaking to the neurosurgeons and specialists after his injury, James was told that the part of his brain that was effected would mean he would see some personality changes. The parts of the personality that were truly &lsquo;him&rsquo; would be much more magnified. That he would become more engrained in the things that are naturally him, the aspects he has had to work/develop on would either become less or be absent completely.
The high divorce rate in people with these types of injuries illustrates that if you become magnified in your true nature without any balance, or forethought, then it may feel easier and more natural but there will be big consequences in your life.
James talked about himself and his life being defined by being an elite sportsman. There are positives in this however it can also be very limiting to define yourself just by one aspect of your life. It restricts what you see about yourself.
Something key you can do when coaching young players is to help them discover what defines them and helping them find influences.
Relationships the glue and what make life worth living.

&ldquo;It does appear there is some light at the end of the tunnel&rdquo;
&ldquo;If you want to be fantastic at what you do can you make that dilation between your personal and professional life?&rdquo;
&ldquo;One sledgehammer won&rsquo;t solve all problems&hellip;we need a whole tool bag&rdquo;
&ldquo;There is an 82% divorce rate in the people that suffer a brain injury&rdquo;
&ldquo;Happy people make successes in many areas of life&rdquo;
&ldquo;Life can be complex and there&rsquo;s not always simple answers&hellip;balance is a big key part of life&rdquo;

057: James Cracknell on Endeavour 057: James Cracknell on Endeavour
A note about CoronavriusWe, individuals, groups, communities, society look up to sporting heroes, we revere and admire their dedication, their persistence, their focus, the sacrifices they make to make the most of their often rare genetics and to do so on the greatest performance stage. As the world battles Coronavirus, we’re all going to be required to make sacrifices that we’ve never made before in pursuit of applying ourselves, to the collective goal of public health. We’ve thought hard about whether while the world is taking dramatic turn, whether the appropriateness of us publishing podcast episodes about a topic of human performance is even relevant. Certainly we can appreciate that if you normally tune in but your head is elsewhere at the moment then it might be better to switch off, go an focus on what you need to do (which hopefully isn’t stock piling toilet rolls) and listen to this again when it suits you best. We’ve decided to continue because perhaps these episodes can offer some inspiration, maybe an hour’s worth of distraction, perhaps to help refocus you on what you need to be doing. Also, there are a lot of people now distancing and isolating for the first time in their lives – I hope in some ways these episodes can be some supportive company and a positive influence as the worry and the noise surrounding the outbreak increases. This week's episode features my interview with James Cracknell.Two time Olympic Champion in coxless four rowing, part of perhaps the most renowned rowing crew of all time the Sydney 2000 four – a team I was honoured to support. On retirement, James didn’t put his feet up, in fact almost the opposite. He crossed the Atlantic with Ben Fogle, raced to the South Pole, kayaked the length of the Thames, was at the time the fastest Briton to run the Marathon de Sables, competed in the Yukon Arctic Ultra and has run the London Marathon numerous times with a best time of 2:43 which for a 90kg guy is phenomenal (at the time of recording James was headed for the London Marathon in a few weeks, but the event has now been postponed for now to October). In 2010 James undertook Ride Across America and was hit by a petrol tanker suffering a contrecoup brain injury – he is now a campaigner for the use of bike helmets – which effectively saved his life. Last year James became the oldest competitor and the oldest winner, in the history of the Oxford – Cambridge boat being twice as old as his crew mates and competitors and older than some of his crew mates dad’s. I worked with James in the pursuit of this goal and it was one of the most challenging cases I’ve worked on, to problem solve and innovate in such unique ways. James did so through some trying personal circumstances which played out in the press. In this conversation James and I discuss his early in drivers, becoming part of a crew with some of the highest achievers in sport Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent. Why he kept pushing towards goals after he retired from Olympic sport and his passions for public service and how through public policy he aspires to make the biggest difference to the people’s health and well-being. I do believe there is a lesson in here about creating intensity about doing what we need to do to accomplish something. I also think there is a message about feeling the fears but rather than being paralysed by them – acting upon them.
Happy listening, keep your distance and wash your hands folks!
