“We all get hijacked by those bad moments, and it ruins our day. And it doesn’t have to.” -Michael O’Brien 

In this episode, Jay talks with former pharma executive, Michael O’Brien, who after suffering a near-fatal cycling accident now serves as an author, speaker and coach.  Michael’s newest book is “My Last Bad Day–Shift” where he focuses on not letting bad moments turn into bad days. Jay asks him about that process during the podcast, as well as: learning to trust the process, playing Superman in your business, how to exercise patience as an entrepreneur, chasing band-aids, not personalizing setbacks, and how Michael responds to bad moments by taking a PBR.
