Optimizing Performance with Professor Kevin Marks

In this episode, Professor Kevin Marks from Solano College in California joins me to discuss the work he does around optimizing performance through mental and physical systems. Kevin's extensive knowledge and deep experience in the field comes alive in this episode through the rich discussion that we have around mindset training, mindfulness, the power of goal-setting and breath work. Kevin and I are connected through an online learning community that we belong to called the Finding Mastery Tribe that is led by Dr. Michael Gervais, the sports psychologist for the NFL team Seattle Seahawks.

Kevin gives specific insight into strategies and approaches that anyone can apply to help plant the seeds for success in their personal and professional life. It was a pleasure to have him on the show and I want to thank him for his time.
