Adam has a slew of additional accolades to his name, one of which is that in 2013, Adam made the first ever attempt to row unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa to America, the subject of the NBC Dateline Documentary, Capsized. It was great to have Adam in the studio to talk about his new book, the idea of providence and patience, what he believes the evolution of SMART goals is, and much more.

  • How does failure and Adam's knowledge on that play into his book? (2:04)

  • This is what Adam uses instead of SMART goals (20:43)

  • We (finally) get to talk about patience and its role when you know that you have plenty you want to accomplish in a short timespan... like an athletic career (45:21)

"You visualize the end point and you want the end point to be there now because you can see it, yet you have to put in the work." - Adam Kreek
