Max#13: Pen Hadow – “how I maximise my potential”

In our final interview with record-breaking polar explorer Pen Hadow we discuss:

  • How Pen’s life changed when he returned home after his record-breaking feat.
  • What his achievements taught him with regards to the need for work/life balance.
  • How ‘Maximising one’s Potential’ is all within the mind.
  • The model Pen applies in his own life to continue challenging himself.

As with our previous interviews, Pen speaks with an openness and honesty that really enables you to visualise the sheer extremities of the challenge that he successfully undertook.

This interview is for you if you really want to maximise your own potential as it will give you a firsthand account of how someone has come up against some of the greatest physical and mental challenges to man and pushed on through them, when everyone else had failed. He kept on going past the point where every other person had decided to give up – and as a result, claimed his place in the history books.
