Professional Ironman athlete TJ Tollakson may not be a household name, but in cycling and triathlon circles he, and the bike brand he launched – Dimond Bikes, are legendary.
An industrial designer by trade, TJ transferred his passion into a business that has helped fuel his dreams and placed him in the enviable position of doing what he loves for a living.
We taped this interview while in Hawai’i a few weeks ago for the Ironman Championships and TJ touches on some great things here including the idea of “closing the gap.”
On the course and in our business we are constantly looking ahead to the next racer or goal we can pluck off…to closing the gap between ourselves and that next thing that keeps us moving forward. And then once we achieve that goal our eyes go back to the horizon to find the next goal to close the gap on.
I hope you all enjoy the video and I welcome you to make comments below about what you have your eyes on and how you close the gap to achieve your goals.
