Marginal Gains

If you can break down a problem into the incremental, great gains can be made.

“Marginal Gains. The approach comes from the idea that if you breakdown a big goal into small parts, and then improve on each of them, you will deliver a huge increase when you put them all together.” 

Sir Dave Brailsford

Despite recent allegations against the coaching legend, his thoughts provide great insights into success. Regardless of the investigation’s outcome, nothing can be taken from the approach. It can be applied to work, losing weight, painting the next great work, writing the great American novel, or any sport.

Still, cycling has challenges. Love the sport. Enjoy the ride. Be skeptical of your heroes.
