My recent conversation with Atul Tuli revealed some great learnings from his experience while running Austria Ironman. Ironman is an extremely demanding event with 3.86 km swim,180 km cycling & 42.195 km run. His learnings, which i attempted to #sketchnote, can be read at:

In summary,the following matters in business as also in endurance sports:

6. Enjoying the journey
7. Being #Humble
8. Being Thankful

What are some of your #learnings from #sports that you see applicable in business? Please share.
