Crunch Time: How to Be Your Best When It Matters Most (getAbstract Summary)

Performance anxiety can be a formidable opponent, whether you’re a professional athlete, surgeon, salesperson, or student. How you deal with pressure during “crunch times” often determines if you are going to succeed or fail. Rick Peterson, a well-respected major league baseball pitching coach for many years, wrote a book on overcoming difficult, stress-filled situations. This audio-only summary from getAbstract reviews the highlights. Peterson’s philosophy, developed with leadership development expert Judd Hoekstra, uses “reframing,” the ability to look at a situation differently and avoid intimidation, and “chunking,” breaking daunting challenges down into smaller pieces. getAbstract believes that this practical, insightful guide can help you interpret events in a way that turns threats into challenges— and challenges into opportunities.
