For too many endeavors, we get caught up in the preparation. The checklist containing the various pre-requisites, gear, and financial steps needed to tackle a particular objective.

Earlier this year Rich Roll interviewed David Goggins on his podcast. David has completed a number of incredibly demanding challenges such as U.S. Army Ranger School, SEAL training, Badwater 135 mile ultramarathon across Death Valley, Ultraman World Championships and more.
