Just Manageable Challenges
A just manageable challenge is approaching an activity that makes you feel a bit out of control and a bit out of your skill level. Mastering any skill will ultimately come from struggle.

But the truth is as expressed by author Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness in their book Peak Performance, Lamb is “grounded in a meticulous approach to training and a bulletproof mindset that he cultivates day in and day out.” Are you choosing challenges that will test your power but yet not so tough that you will continually fail?
