Relentless by Tim Grover
This book creates champions. It's a blueprint for achieving excellence in anything you do. It centers around Grover's athletic training experience with some of the biggest NBA stars imaginable - Michael Jordan, Dwyane Wade, and Kobe Bryant. It's direct, blunt, and brutally honest. He teaches you how to be a "Cleaner" - Someone who takes responsibility for everything and owns the entire process regardless of who or what may have impacted the outcome. Cleaners are the last people you bring in when it's clear no one else can handle the situation. They are calm, unflappable, and failure is never an option. This book is a quick read and I gleaned multiple tidbits to apply to my daily life.
