Jana Eggers: Train for an Ironman (or Pick Up a Challenging Hobby)
While Eggers, co-founder of SureCruise.com, former: Intuit exec, CEO of Spreadshirt and SVP at Blackbaud, acknowledges that grueling triathlons aren’t for everyone, she advocates any activity that kicks your butt. “Forcers,” as she calls them, require smart time management. “I recommend anything that requires focus and discipline…they are good skills to reinforce.” A fulfilling hobby, says Eggers, can also be a healthy distraction from the day-to-day grind. And it need not be physically grueling. “It can be cooking, gardening, singing…just something that you can focus on and master. The important thing is…pick something big and be dedicated to it.”
