Do Hard Things

Dec 29, 2021

In this episode I have a great conversation with Matt Crossman about doing hard things and the reason it is important to face challenges outside your comfort zone. Matt is passionate about the topic of developing grit and discipline. We talk about how shared suffering in a group environment forges deep relationships. 


Matt has been a journalist for 27 years and has written for a variety of publications including, Success Magazine, and Cowboys and Indians Magazine.   


Matt has written over 50 cover stories for national magazines and has been cited by Best American Sports Writing and Best American Essays a combined eight times. Matt has won dozens of awards from regional, state, and national organizations, including writer of the year from the National Motorsports Press Associations twice. He is the only writer in the 125-year history of The Sporting News to appear on the cover.  He has been married for 12 years and has two kids, 15 and 12.
