Can a genius be satisfied with themundane and the status quo? I was watching a documentary on movieproducer and director Sam Peckinpah. His approach made me thing aboutthis. He was always dancing on the edge, pushing the envelope on whatcould be done in film. It got me thinking that this was also true inhuman athletic performance. To be the absolute best, you have to pushthe envelope; you must dance on the edge. The difference betweenhighest level athlete performance and sickness and injury are balancingon a razor edge. It is almost like you have to be a gunfighter; youmust be on the edge, living with the constant realization that there isalways someone out there who could be faster. Iam convinced that is why so many athletes will not retire and when theydo they have a tough transition to normal life. High level competitionand training is an almost constant rush, an adrenaline high necessaryto get to the top and stay there.
