Synopsis

Drawing on more than a decade's experience working with former tennis World Number One Andy Murray, The Way of the Tortoise introduces you to the benefits of the slow lane, and reveals why it's the only path to a high-performance mindset.Taking inspiration from the fable of the Hare and the Tortoise, internationally renowned trainer Matt Little recognizes that there is no fast path to success. By focusing on immediate results, we can gloss over process in a race to get ahead, skipping over the lessons and experiences that we all need to build solid foundations for our achievements. Matt shows that taking the slow lane can not only help you reach your goals more effectively, it can make your successes more sustainable by increasing your motivation, energy and resilience. By challenging you to a Tortoise test at the end of part one to see where you current skillset lies, and then encouraging you to take part in exercises in part two that will help you improve your score before moving onto the Tortoise bootcamp at the end of the book, Matt motivates you to reflect on your life and work values, and discover the long-term objectives that will be your building blocks to future success. Carrying the values of the Tortoise with us, this book shows that slow and steady really does win the race, helping to create an inspirational environment for yourself and others that encourages development through increased awareness and empathy. Drawing on examples from the highly adaptive world of sport, as well as Matt's own amazing career, The Way of the Tortoise demonstrates the ways in which persistence and fortitude can be purposefully married with flexibility to take you where you want to be.
