I got this anecdote from one of those “Famous Universities” who compete in a Boat Race.

Walking into Goldie boat house now, any visitor will notice two empty, glass mason jars sitting on the window ledge: one representing Cambridge alongside one representing Oxford.

Each training session, a rower receives five marbles to distribute into the jars.

After each training session, they ask themselves, did they put everything into this session? Could this session be the pivotal moment for defeating Oxford? If yes, they distribute all their marbles into the Cambridge jar. Or, did they not push themselves to the limit and actively give Oxford a step ahead? Do they put a marble into Oxford’s jar?

What can you do for your crew to improve focus and the drive to succeed?
