be resilient.

This comes from the motto ‘illegitimi non carborundum’ that my father, a triathlon pioneer (IM Hawaii 1985) and the most disciplined man I know, shared with me when I was young. It means ‘don’t let the bastards grind you down’ and has been extremely useful to me as a career innovator, lifetime endurance athlete and whenever I face adversity in my life.
