Hard Work: Sir Alastair Cook

Don’t Tell Me The Score

Why all the greats have hard work in common, with England cricket legend Sir Alastair Cook. As well as being England captain, Alastair was one of the most prolific batsmen cricket has ever seen. Not only is he England's most capped player, he's also their leading run scorer in Test matches- and it's largely down to his undoubted work ethic. In this episode of DTMTS, Alastair talks about where his work ethic comes from, and why all the greats have hard work in common. He explains why he would intentionally make himself uncomfortable in training, and put himself in situations where he would rather not be. He also talks to Simon Mundie about the inner critic we all have, which Alastair has taken to calling The Gimp, and how to manage it for success. They discuss the art of concentration and some key aspects of good leadership too, as well as the importance of difficult conversations and the power of nature to provide perspective.
