In this episode of The Competitive Edge we dive into the topic of achievement and how we can approach the art of “happily achieving”

It’s funny. A lot of us are really quick to ask ourselves what we want without ever asking what we’re willing to give up to achieve it which is a much greater predictor of whether we’ll get those things and enjoy the process along the way.
