To the casual observer, when I'm training for triathlons, it may look like I’m just hard at play. However, that is when I do a lot of my deepest thinking and churning of thoughts. (What else are you gonna do with an hour staring at the bottom of a pool?!) One of my streams of thoughts was around some of the training activities I needed to do to prepare for my big triathlon this summer, and that many of the training concepts could also be applied to preparing for and implementing business transformation: What are my goals for this year? What is my current fitness level? Which skill area do I need to improve? Do I have the right equipment? Should I hire a coach this year? How am I going to stay injury-free? How am I going to stay focused on training among family, work, and everyday life?
