The Power of More shows readers how to accomplish their goals, big or small, by just doing a little bit more. Whether you are a novice runner who wants to complete a 10k race or an elite athlete after a gold medal, you can achieve your ambition by believing in the importance of doing a little bit more. A three-time Olympic champion, McBean explains the effect of breaking down big goals into manageable bits that you can do, as well as the idea that you almost always have a little bit more to give. She discusses the importance of setting goals, the role of communication and teamwork, and the need for motivation, commitment, and accountability. Finally, she dispels the myth that we should expect to be perfect and stresses that both confidence and success are the result of preparation.
